Rod Taylor and Malik Newman share the same hallways. They also share a special friendship that started in middle school.
The two high profile prospects played on the same AAU team growing up. They've also played on the same state championship basketball team the past two years.
Malik calls Rod his big brother, while Rod feels like a protector of the guy he calls his little brother.
