He was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team and received honorable mention freshman All-America accolades.

Taylor was a two-time all-district performer at Hightower High School in Houston, where he was also selected for the All-Greater Houston Team. Herbert Reginald Taylor II, who majored in advertising and public relations with a minor in social work at TCU, was born Sept. 22, 1984.
