Trae Young is a 6'2 20-year old new-wave jump shooting point guard coming off one of the most productive seasons of any player in NCAA history leading the nation in both points and assists per game as a true freshman at Oklahoma. Teaming with Michael and Jontay Porter to guide Mokan Elite to a Nike Peach Jam Championship, helping USA Basketball take home a gold medal at the 2016 FIBA U18 Americas Championship, and participating in both the 2017 McDonald’s All-American Game and Jordan Brand Classic, he was considered one of the consensus top-25 prospects in the high school class coming out of Norman North, but far exceeded expectations lifting Oklahoma into the top-5 by mid-January.
By the end of his only college season, Young would be the first and only player to ever lead the NCAA in both points and assists in a single season. He was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks in the 2018 NBA Draft with the fifth pick, but was later traded to the Atlanta Hawks, along with a future first-round pick for the draft rights to Luka Dončić.
