From Rivals ($):
"They said they will look for me to be aggressive," Talton said. "I am going to try to bring my leadership, my scoring and my point guard abilities. I just want to make everybody around me better."

Talton was named the 4A Colorado player of the year and Tri-Valley Conference player of the year after he led Sterling to 27 wins and a state championship as a junior last season. He averaged 21.3 points during Sterling's final three playoff victories.

"Xavier can score a heck of a lot of points for you. He has a great shot but he would just assume pass the ball and get his teammates the ball," Sterling head coach Mike Holloway previously told BuffStampede.com. "He has a real knack for setting up his teammates and creating opportunities for them. He has a great feel for the game."
