Trae Young announcing decision in two weeks


At one time, most people thought Trae Young would be John Calipari’s next great point guard; however, after waiting on Young to commit for months, Cal went ahead and accepted a commitment from two other point guards, Quade Green and Shai Alexander. Now, Young is finally ready to make his decision. Today, he tweeted that he’ll announce where he’s going to college on February 16 at his high school:

Is Kentucky still an option? With two point guards already on the roster, probably not. Earlier this week, Young’s dad said the family eliminated two schools from consideration, leaving three to choose from. The smart money’s on Kansas or Oklahoma, and after his dad chastised Oklahoma media for writing a critical article about his son’s team, I’d say Trae’s probably going to be a Jayhawk.

    Not necessarily! Many teams are using two or three point guards that can shoot. If anybody can make this happen, it is Cal. Fox, Monk and Briscoe all are capable of playing point, so it is not to far fetched to start three point guards. What an unbelievable team that would be!

    I couldn’t commit to KU right now, nor would a responsible parent let their kid. They are about to put half the team in jail between the rape, drug, and vandalism charges there.

      you probably couldn’t even make your high school team so i dont think you have to worry about that.

    There’s room for him. He and Green would start. At this point, the team needs two more guards for next year.

      What about Diallo? Is he chopped liver?

      @sa_hunt- he is as good as gone. He will declare, participate in the combine and then follow through on hiring an agent once he gets positive feedback from the NBA scouts attending the event.

    Young, Diallo, Knox, Washington and Bamba. I like that lineup. Green, Vanderbilt, Richards off the bench. A guy can dream can’t he?

      Wishful thinking. Assuming we get all three prospects left on the board, and that Briscoe, Wenyen or Bam don’t return; that could be an 8-9 man rotation of ALL freshmen including Gilgeous-Alexander. That could be interesting.

    Wenyen and Bam should be coming back as far as NBA skills go. Wenyen can’t defend and Bam can’t shoot anything but a dunk. Well, he did make a jump shot last game. But, we know how the league goes. They’ll both be in the ‘D’ league next year. I sure wish they were coming back.

    Young can play one year at UK or three years at KU! Mason is a four year man and Graham three year man! Why aren’t they in the NBA? Because KU has trouble getting people drafted! Remember Perry Ellis and Alexander plus KU might be on probation!
