Yet another Michigan basketball commitment—this one on the women’s side. According to a tweet from Lady Ballers Insider, Taylor Gleason has verbally committed to the Maize and Blue:
2013 Goodrich HS (MI) 5'8" PG Taylor Gleason (All Michigan) has verbally committed to Michigan. More info on lbinsider.com later....
Gleason is the first 2013 commit for Kevin Borseth (or, at least the first one publicly known), and she sounds like a solid addition to the program. She was named a first-team, Class B all-stater for her sophomore season, during which she averaged 11 points, 4 assists, and 3 steals, while leading the Goodrich Martians to the Class B semifinals for the first time.
Here’s a bit of a scouting report from a Flint Journal article:
A very consistent scorer and precision passer, Gleason is shooting 50 percent from the field and 81 percent from the free throw line. She is already drawing the interest of several NCAA Division 1 schools.
"Taylor is a creator and playmaker with her court vision being her best attribute," [Goodrich coach Jason] Gray said. "She is a tremendous passer and seems to see what options are available before anyone else. She makes other players better by getting them the ball when they need it in order to score."
Gleason became more comfortable running the offense this season.
"Taylor has become a true point and that explains why we are averaging more than 70 points a game," Gray said. "She cares about winning, not individual recognition. Over the next two years, her work ethic and determination will help keep us playing at a high level."
