Four-star, Class of 2020 guard Noah Taitz won’t be considering DePaul as a possible college destination, as the Blue Demons were left off his list of final six schools.
The Bishop Gorman standout guard announced the news via Twitter on Saturday night.

DePaul was one of the schools that were on Taitz early, offering him before the start of the 2017-18 high school season. Since then, Taitz fielded nearly 20 offers, with the likes of Utah, Oklahoma, Nevada, Purdue, Minnesota, Vanderbilt, and many others reaching out to 6-foot-3 guard.
Now, he’s down to just six: St. Mary’s (Calif.), Stanford, Washington, San Diego State, BYU, and USC.
Taitz has the ability to play either guard position. He’s a solid shooter that can set up on the perimeter off-ball, and he’s a threat to score from almost anywhere on the floor. However, he’s also savvy enough to be trusted to facilitate and run the offense, helping with getting his teammates going.
He had a solid showing on the AAU circuit this past spring and summer. Playing for Vegas Elite (Nev.) on the Nike EYBL, he averaged 12.9 points per game through 18 games. However, his best AAU play came during the five-game stretch of Peach Jam basketball, where he averaged 15.8 points per contest and topped things off with a personal-best 22 points against Nightrydas Elite (Fla.) in Vegas Elite’s final showdown.
