I don't believe so. I know Taylor personally and even in Middle School he was 6'+. He's listed at 6' 7".
Pretty sure he was referring to Ndayishimiye's height, which is being debated. PS - Ndayishimiye was at a recent home game sitting with his Rice assistant coach (who has a pair of season tickets) down by Tom Brennan's seats at a recent home game. Doesn't really mean anything, but it could be something. Shungu went to a few games that way in HS.

Looks like the VT HS Gatorade POY is Logan Wendell from SJA.

Is he a prospect for UVM and/or SMC?
I saw him play once (this year at Patrick Gym). I liked him: good athleticism, played aggressively. But I'd say at this moment he's a sub-D1 guy, or maybe a year of prep school would help him.

I think the only player at the moment who most people would agree possibly has a chance at a scholarship is Ndayishimiye and even at that there's questions about his height and of course level of competition. I'm sure Wendall has plenty of good options in D3, sounds like a very good student. Some of Vermont's better talents bolted for preps. Kam Farris left and got his D1 spot...Leo Chaikin left Rice and is a 2021 and per Verbal Commits holds a SMC offer, and it's too early but the possible next legitimate scholarship guy in Tyler Bol Bowen is in the class of 2023 and only spent a year at MMU.

Some of these local upperclassmen if they were planning on playing AAU ball with a bigger program or there was a VT-based team aiming on competing in the larger tournaments are all kind of screwed in terms of exposure this summer. Not all of them can afford a prep school either unless they're given a lot of grants and aid money.

Wow. Honestly good for him...but at the same time let's see where he's at by his senior year. 2023 is still far out, and serious recruitment (taking official visits/actually narrowing down your choices) starts in kid's junior years. But, good on him for getting recognized at least at this point in his career by a Big 10 school.
