Former Penn State forward Brandon Taylor has signed with PAOK Thessaloniki, the team’s press officer confirmed in an email Monday.

“I’m excited to be signed with a great basketball club and I’m just very grateful for the opportunity to play professionally in a great country,” Taylor said in a statement on the website of PAOK, a professional team based in Greece.

Taylor led Penn State in scoring and rebounding last season, averaging 16.3 points and 6.5 rebounds. The 6-foot-6 forward was a third-team All-Big Ten selection by the media.
