Ben Lippen junior Will Taylor committed to the Clemson baseball program on Tuesday evening.

Taylor made his announcement on Twitter. He attended a prospect camp at Clemson last weekend.

“The Clemson culture is very special and unique,” Taylor said.

Diamond Prospects has Taylor as the fourth-best outfielder in Class of 2021. He will participate in DP’s Palmetto Games next month.

Taylor, who is recruited as an outfielder, was second on Ben Lippen in hitting (.432) and RBIs (24) this season. He also had eight doubles and a team-leading four triples for the Falcons, who advanced to the SCISA 3A championship game.

Taylor drove in three runs in the second game of the Class 3A title series against Hammond. He is the eighth commit for the Tigers’ Class of 2021 and fourth in-state.

Taylor is a multi-sport athlete and also is the starting quarterback for the Falcons football team. Taylor took over QB duties midway through the season and threw for 668 yards and five scores. He also rushed for 490 yards and seven touchdowns.

Taylor also was a SCISA wrestling individual champion and was part of the Falcons’ state championship winning track and field team.
