Elite 80 Expo Profile: Shafeek Taylor

Name: Shafeek Taylor

Position: Small Forward

Ht: 6’2

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

AAU Team: Peacemakers

Strengths: Taylor is a long but strong forward that does a lot of different things. He can score when needed or hit the glass for his team. He operates well on the baseline and uses his body to initiate contact. On defense he holds his ground well while defending the post or perimeter.

Areas Of Improvement: For Taylor to continue in his progress of becoming a top prospect he would need to increase his speed, explosiveness and outside shot. He looks like he might be a sure shot wing but with some more time in the gym this could be a reality.
