No. 15 Sr Trae Young will Pick College Mid -Winter

ESPN No. 21 ranked high school junior Trae Young has trimmed his college list down to six schools: Kentucky, Washington, Oklahoma, Kansas, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech.


The explosive 6-1 point guard out of Norman North High (Okla.) averaged a whopping 25.8 points along with 8.8 assists and 6.3 rebounds for Mokan Elite at the May Nike EYBL session in Hampton, VA.


Young had some incredible scoring games this season at Norman North, including pouring in a career-high 60 points in a 102-70 victory against in-state foe Yukon.


In January, Young had three 40-plus point games over a two-week span.


He dropped 40 in the McGuiness Classic final on Jan. 10.


Then Young poured in 44 in a Jan. 12 victory over Deer Creek.


He followed that up with a then career-high 48 in a 83-77 win against Mustang. The red-hot Young had a whopping 35 in the second half and 19 in the fourth quarter to lead Norman North past one of their toughest opponents.


Young also just won a USA gold medal at the 2016 FIBA Men’s U18 World Championship in Valdivia, Chile.


As for his college decision, Young’s father Ray was a star player for Texas Tech in the 1990s.


Young is also very close with his Mokan Elite teammate, No. 4 Jr Michael Porter, who has just committed to Washington, so he could end up there.


He has also made many visits to Kansas, but he could opt to stay home and attend Oklahoma State where head coach Brad Underwood has been heavily pursuing the high scoring floor general.


In addition, Kentucky has made Young their top point guard recruiting target.


Stay tuned.
