Norman North 2017 Point Guard Trae Young added another impressive accomplishment to his high school career on Sunday night being selected to the 2017 McDonald’s All-American Game. The high school career of Young has been exciting to watch with him show vast improvement each year.
For the people who have watched Young develop all the way through his high school career it is evident in his senior year Young has turned into an all-around Point Guard. Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Kentucky and Washington are the final six schools vying for Young’s talents at the next level.
Young is averaging over 40 points per game this season at Norman North in Class 6A, which is the highest level of basketball competition in Oklahoma. ESPN has Young ranked as the #2 Point Guard in the class and #15 overall in the nation.
Young will get a chance to go head to head against the top ranked Point Guard according to the rankings, Trevon Duval. The McDonald’s All-American game is a special honor for Young. Last summer Young stamped his high school legacy on the Nike EYBL leading MOKAN Elite alongside Michael Porter Jr. to a Peach Jam championship.
Young has a chance to shatter the points per game record in Class 6A this season. The shooting skills Young possess, with his expert vision, and precise passes make him a special prospect. Players like Young do not come around often and are even rarer in the state of Oklahoma.
