Sport Oregon State Basketball: Beavers Land Commitment From 4-Star Forward Glenn Taylor Jr.
NBA Power Rankings: Joel Embiid powers 76ers into top spot
The red-hot Clippers remain in second, followed by the Jazz and Suns. 1. 76ers (39-18 Last Week No. 4). Beating the shorthanded Nets put Philadelphia in the driver’s seat for the No. 1 seed in the East, then a win over the Clippers (also shorthanded, although so were the 76ers) cemented their contender status and put Philly atop these rankings (we’re not holding the loss to the tornado that is Stephen Curry against them). Joel Embiid is dominating again and thrusting himself back into the MVP conversation with his recent play, averaging 34.
Glenn Taylor Jr., a four-star swingman in the class of 2021 from Compass Prep in Arizona, committed to Oregon State over New Mexico, via a post on his Twitter account late Monday night.

Taylor Jr. is listed at 6’ 6”, 190 pounds and his commitment rides the impressive wave of recruiting momentum for Oregon State’s program, which has followed the team’s miraculous run to the Elite Eight in the recent NCAA Tournament.
Head coach Wayne Tinkle will add Taylor Jr., along with junior college transfer DaShawn Davis to the mix this winter, in addition to four Division I transfers, that include Tre Williams from Minnesota, Chol Marial from Maryland, Ahmad Rand from Memphis and Zxavier Malone-Key from Fairleigh Dickinson.
