Trae Young taking an official visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness


Trae Young is Kentucky’s most important recruit in the 2017 class, which makes the news I’m about to share very good. The five-star point guard just released his schedule of official visits, and according to that, he’s coming to Lexington on the biggest recruiting night of the year, Big Blue Madness on October 14.

Kentucky and Oklahoma are considered the frontrunners for the Norman, Oklahoma native, with Kentucky holding on to a slim 5% lead in his 247 Sports Crystal Ball. Four of the last five picks in the Crystal Ball have been for the Sooners, including that of recruiting guru Jerry Meyer; however, if there’s an event to change someone’s mind, it’s Big Blue Madness.

    Glad to have him. I hope they find someone other than Drake. I cringe thinking about last year’s introduction. Creepy.
