With Jordan Woodard running out of eligibility and Darrion Strong-Moore electing to transfer, the Oklahoma Sooners looked thin at the point guard position moving forward. The move left Lon Kruger with Jordan Shepherd as the only PG on the roster. Of course, All-American and 5-star point guard, Trae Young committed to the Sooners back in February. However, nothing is official until a letter of intent has been signed — at least in my book.
On April 12th, the late signing period opened and the Norman North star inked his name on the dotted line. Although we welcomed Young to Sooner Nation back in February, we can now officially welcome him here in April!
As the highest rated player to sign with Oklahoma under Lon Kruger, the high school standout averaged 42.6 points as a senior. The effort led Young to a second consecutive Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the Year award. Possessing a top tier freshman and a ton of youngsters who gained valuable experience on the college circuit, how high is the ceiling for OU?
We’ll have to wait for the answer to that question.
