Trae Young, a five-star point guard from Norman North High School, made locals jump for joy when he announced his commitment to the Oklahoma Sooners back in February. On April 17, he made it official by signing a National Letter of Intent. Now that his recruitment is officially over, it’s time for OU fans to marvel at the player they’ll be watching during the 2017-18 season.
Young averaged 42.6 points per contest as a senior at Norman North in 2017, and he did so with shooting touch and range that reminds many of Steph Curry. However, Young is much, much more than just a lights-out shooter — he’s also an outstanding distributor and floor general.
Young is the caliber of player that comes out of the state of Oklahoma maybe every 10-15 years, and Oklahoma head coach Lon Kruger had to hold off the likes of Kansas and Kentucky to keep the McDonald’s All-American in the Sooner State. He’ll likely be one of the favorites to win the Big 12 Player of the Year Award in 2017-18, and I’m more than confident that Young will live up to that hype.
Without further ado, here are Trae Young’s top 10 plays from his senior season (per Mars Reel):
