College high-flyer signs up for draft
Trae Young leaves the Oklahoma Sooners after just one season. The 19-year-old is now ready for the NBA after an outstanding season.
After just one season in college, Trae Young will enroll in the upcoming NBA draft. This was announced by the 19-year-old in a statement to ESPN.
“I spent most of my life preparing to join the NBA, and now it’s time for me,” Young wrote: “After an unforgettable year in Oklahoma, I’m going to join the NBA Draft in June and focus fully on starting a professional basketball career,” Young writes.
Young played an outstanding season with the Oklahoma Sooners. 27.4 points and 8.7 assists mean the best scores in each country. He scored over 40 points four times, over 30 nine times.
The first-round out of the Oklahoma Sooners in the 1. In the second round of March Madness (LIVE on TV on SPORT1 US) against Rhode Island he could not prevent despite 28 points and 7 rebounds (All results of March Madness).
His precise threesomes and the somewhat slender stature are reminiscent of the young NBA superstar Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
