Oregon State Men’s Basketball: Glenn Taylor Jr. Enters the Transfer Portal

The Oregon State rebuilding job just got tougher with the Beavers losing one of their best players.

After weeks of speculation about his future with the Beavers, Oregon State guard Glenn Taylor Jr. officially announced his decision to enter the transfer portal Tuesday evening.

Taylor has been a key part of the Beavers for the past couple seasons. He was Oregon State’s second leading scorer this year, with his 11.6 points per game behind only Jordan Pope’s 12.6. Taylor has two years of college eligibility left.

This is the first shoe to drop in what could be another tumultuous offseason for the Beavers. Attention will now shift to Jordan Pope’s plans for the future. In his freshman season Pope led the Beavers in points per game and assists per game, and was the team’s best 3 point shooter.

The Beavers improved a lot in 2023, but not enough to really compete in a very tough Pac-12 Conference. With Wayne Tinkle on the hotseat, Oregon State will need to land some transfer portal targets of their own if they want to make further strides next season.
