Sure, the best freshman college players are so good that they play for their school for a year and the next season they are in the Association. This could happen for Oklahoma Sooner point guard Trae Young, the best overall point guard in the college game today.
Want to see what a eighteen year old freshman can do please take a visit to the nearest area where the Sooners play and take a view. Given where Young this year, on track in being a first team All-American and we will see if this already developed guard will take the next step in the spring. His game to day is miles ahead of Steph Curry’s as a frosh, and we can already compare this phenom with the great NBA super-star at the same time. Young can do it all . Shoot, shoot the three, drive, dish, pass, and do it with greatness. For this 6’2 youngster from Norman, OK, he performs every night. He leads the nation in scoring at over twenty-eight a night and is a top assist man with nine plus a game.
Tonight, Young missed becoming only the second Sooner freshman to score 30 points in four straight games, and if not for a early 3-point shooting drought in the first half, he could have had his thirty in the first twenty. Head Coach Lon Kruger took him out of a blow-out game with the Univ. of Texas, San Antonio with minutes to go. Young got 28. That record will fall later in the year. OU won 97-85
Do not under-estimate this teenager and his abilities. He is a true star on the court in the college game and a future big time player in the Association. And it will be sooner than later.
