2017 guard Javon Taylor is now officially uncommitted, according to his father Maurice Taylor. The elder Taylor tweeted the news on Thursday. The commitment of Taylor after Providence’s 2014 Elite Camp came as a shock to many people because of how early the pledge was made. For comparison the Friars also got a commitment around that time from another player in Alex Owens. Owens was in the class of 2015. Taylor’s family does have a relationship with Cooley as the Friar head coach recruited Javon’s older brother Jacquil.
Providence’s Late Night Madness events keep growing year after year under Ed Cooley and the 2015 version is no different. After announcing that Ludacris would be the performer back on September 1st, Providence athletics released a statement on Thursday that the emcee of the 2015 festivities will be none other than broadcasting legend Bill Raftery.

Kris Dunn. Abdul-Malik Abu. Donovan Mitchell. Wenyen Gabriel. What do these players all have in common? They were recruited by Providence head coach Ed Cooley before they blew up on the national recruiting scene. Dunn was being recruited by Cooley while the current Friar head coach was at Fairfield. He went from being a recruit on that level to a McDonald’s All-American. Gabriel is probably the closest to Dunn in terms of meteoric rise. Cooley and his staff have shown an uncanny ability to be able to identify these players before they start their upward trajectory as recruits. Who’s the next recruit that Providence is in early on that will blow up nationally? My guess is Aaron Wheeler in the class of 2017.
