Oklahoma Frosh Trae Young Leads Nation In Assists

Oklahoma’s Trae Young Off To Historic Start

Star Oklahoma freshman Trae Young is leading the nation in assists, averaging a whopping 18.5 dimes this season.

 

The 6-2 point guard, ESPN’s No. 23 player in the 2017 high school class, is also the Sooners’ top scorer, averaging 18.5 points a game.

 

“Young is the centerpiece of Oklahoma’s 32nd-ranked recruiting class,” wrote SI.com’s Joan Niesen. “An intriguing scoring threat from the one, he could stick around Norman for several seasons and potentially be a piece for Lon Kruger & Co. to build around.”

 

“We all remember what happened the last time the Sooners had a top-rated guard: Buddy Hield grew into a star and led his team to a Final Four in his senior season,” Niesen added

 

The explosive Young averaged a an eye-popping 42.6 point along with 5.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists last season for Norman North HS (OK).

 

As a junior, Young averaged a whopping 35.4 points along with 8.2 assists for Norman North.

 

Young was also one of the top players on the entire Nike EYBL circuit in 2016, averaging 23.2 points and 7.1 assists to lead Mokan to the Peach Jam championship along with teammate, No. 2 2016 recruit Michael Porter (Missouri).

 

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