Young has successful summer

2016 forward Solomon Young believes he had a successful summer. Read on to see why that is, how his recruitment is going, and more.

Sacramento (Calif.) forward Solomon Young may have flown under the radar this past week due to playing with Justin Simon, Chase Jeter, and Bennie Boatwright.

However, the 6-goot-6, 220-pound three-star prospect had an impressive week of his own and continues to be an intriguing prospect in the west for the 2016 class.

“The summer went well for me,” Young said. “I am just trying to improve my dribbling and my shooting. I feel I am good in the low post and on the glass, but I want to expand my game.”

Young currently holds a handful of offers, but is also receiving recruiting attention from numerous schools.

“Recruiting is pretty casual right now,” he said. “I am hearing from Washington, Tulsa, Arizona, California, San Diego State, UCLA, and some others.”

As Young hears from the schools contacting him, he knows what he will be looking for from each of them.

“I am looking at how I feel about the coaching staff and players,” he said. “I want to make sure I fit in the program and can be happy there.”

One factor that likely will not play a role in his decision is location.

“I am used to traveling and we travel so much in AAU, that it does not really matter where I wind up going to school,” he said.

Young had a dream school for quite a while, but the recruiting process opened his eye to other options.

“Growing up, Kentucky was my favorite school, but now that I am getting top coaches talking to me, I am open to everybody and it is not really a dream school anymore,” he said.
