Saint John’s Glenn Taylor Jr. to transfer to GCU

Saint John forward Glenn Taylor Jr. announced on his X account Saturday that he has transferred to GCU.

Taylor returned to Arizona while attending high school at Arizona Compass Prep School in Chandler.

Taylor spent his first two seasons in college at Oregon State before transferring to Saint John’s for the 2023-24 season.

In his junior season with the Red Storm, Taylor shot 45 percent from the field and 42.4 percent from three-point range. He made 21 starts in 33 games last season.

This comes after news that GCU guard Jovan Blackshester Jr. has entered the transfer portal.

Taylor joins the three-time WAC champions looking to build on their 2023-24 season, which saw the team win its first NCAA tournament in program history.
