Fort Worth, Texas Trae Young, a 6-1 junior point guard from Norman (Okla.) North High, who is ranked No. 26 in the recruiting Class of 2017 by Rivals.com, attended the recent KU-Kentucky game with his dad, Rayford, a former standout at Texas Tech.
“Kansas has the best facilities in the country and most people would agree,” Rayford Young told kentucky.rivals.com.
“Kentucky and Duke may be a close second, but you don’t want to go to a school because of their facilities. It’s about the basketball side of things,” the elder Youn added. “The main thing is being comfortable on campus. Will you be comfortable with the coaching staff and the way they play? That's the biggest thing. Does it fit your style?”
Young is considering KU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kentucky, Duke, Stanford and others.
He’s hoping to be a package deal with Michael Porter, a 6-8 junior guard from Tolton Catholic in Columbia, Mo., who is ranked No. 3 nationally.
