If you were hoping for an early decision from five-star point guard Trae Young, well, keep waiting. Young’s father told Ben Roberts that his son is “100%” planning to wait until the spring to sign to see how some of the schools on his list fare in the early part of the season, although he will probably announce his decision sometime in January.
Kentucky and Oklahoma are considered the favorites for Young, and although the fact that he’s not committing in the early period could be interpreted as a bad sign for Kentucky, his father stressed that his son is still “really, really high” on the Cats and wouldn’t care if Kentucky signed other guards, which they may in Quade Green and Shai Alexander.
“They’re losing their whole backcourt, so they’re going to need two or three other guards,” he said. “No matter who signs there, that doesn’t affect Trae at all. I certainly want people to understand that. Trae is so confident in his skill and his ability. And he wants to play with other great players.”
Young’s dad said they plan to visit all of the schools on his list to see games early this season, including Kentucky.
