It has been an exciting season in NCAA Basketball, but Trae Young of the Oklahoma Sooners has been the unexpected star of the show.
To start the season, you probably did not see the name Trae Young at the top of many projected draft boards. The Oklahoma Sooner freshman has been re-writing the narrative with his silky-smooth jumper.
In the age of the three pointer, we knew that another Steph Curry-type shooter was bound to emerge. Is that Trae Young?
The 6'2" guard is averaging 30 points and 10 assists per game this season. That is a pretty impressive line for any college player. Young also dropped 44 against Baylor on Tuesday, only 10 days after hanging 48 against their in-state rival OSU Cowboys.
He has emerged as the Sooner's top recruit since Blake Griffin. He doesn't seem surprised though.
If Trae Young can keep up this dominant display, he will almost certainly show up to the NBA draft as one of the top prospects.
He was flying below the radar coming into the year, which only seems to have fueled his fire. Young players can look to Trae as an example of where hard work and determination can take you.
