Norman prep PG Trae Young announces he'll play for Oklahoma

Young, who made the announcement at his high school, chose the Sooners over Kansas and Oklahoma State after many months of speculation. He's able to distribute, but from what I've seen (about six games in person), Young likes to get his shot, though he doesn't it force it. Recently, the McDonald's All-American narrowed his choices to three schools: Oklahoma, Kansas and Oklahoma State. "I felt like I could do everything I want to do at a blueblood right here at home". Young will join them on the second signing date - April 12.

While those two schools have been vastly different in terms of on-court success and producing National Basketball Association talent, the Sooners were always viewed as a legitimate threat simply because Young was strongly interested in staying home and playing in front of friend and family for his likely-brief college career. "The recruiting process has been very long and very tough".

Riders talking with ex-NFL QB Vince Young
Chosen as the third-overall pick in the 2006 draft by Tennessee, Young had his moments under center for the Titans. In January Young pleaded no contest to a 2016 drunk driving arrest and was sentenced to 18 months probation.

Young goes down as the highest-rated recruit of the Kruger era. I built a lot of trust with all these coaches. With Kameron McGusty and Kristian Doolittle being two of the top freshman in the country this year, they have been outstanding.

Although OSU couldn't land Young over OU, it gets a quick shot at payback. "I can't wait to play with those guys".

Former Chelsea and England midfielder Lampard retires
The midfielder won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League during a trophy-laden spell at Chelsea. He scored 211 goals in 648 appearances over 13 years at the club he joined from West Ham for £11million in 2001.

"Last year, the run they made and I like the way coach Kruger lets his players play", he said.

Both of those former OU players were major difference-makers in turning around the Sooner men's basketball program, and Young, who has shown tremendous talent and leadership ability at the point-guard position, will have the same opportunity. Growing up, I never played on a losing team and that won't change now.

With the addition of Young, the Sooners now have a trio of pledges in their 2017 recruiting class.
