Trae Young calls himself position-less guard, says he can play with Green at UK

Trae Young has a new blog entry up over at USA Today High School Sports and in it he talks a little bit about Kentucky and the possibility of joining Quade Green and Shai Alexander in the UK backcourt next season.

Young was happy for Green when Green committed to the Cats, he says, and he is confident he could play alongside him, if Kentucky ends up being his pick:

With Kentucky, they got Quade Green and I was so happy for him and his family. They also picked up another guard in Alexander, but you have to look at Coach Cal’s resume; he’s always played with two or three guards on the court at the same time, so anything is possible. I definitely feel like I can play with anyone. I consider myself a position-less guard, I can do it all (Pass, shoot, score and defend).

Plus, we played together really well at USA Basketball.

Young also shut down the belief that he is only considering Kentucky and Oklahoma, saying Kansas and Oklahoma State are also in “serious contention.”

    Ive been saying for months…he is KU bound. His family is cool with proximity of KU, and it offers all the elite program promise as UK
