  • Prospect’s Will commits to Brown Aug 28, 2014 3:23 PM
    Although she had a standout all-area season as a freshman, Taylor Will didn’t start thinking about playing basketball in college until her sophomore year. Then she learned about coach Ashley Sandstead-Graham’s stellar basketball career at Illinois State and Buffalo Grove High School. “Coach Graham (former Daily Herald all-area honorary tri-captain) started coaching at Prospect my sophomore year,” Will said “She has always been such an inspiration to me so I was sure I wanted to play in college after seeing how great her experience was. “I am unbelievably lucky to have been taught by such an amazing person. She has helped me tremendously and I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done.” After this season, opposing teams in the Mid-Suburban League will be thankful they don’t to defend the 5-foot-10 Will any longer. That will be the new challenge for Ivy league schools. Will has made a verbal commitment to play for Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
