Four schools are making Kyle Young a priority

Four schools are showing the most interest in 2017 four-star power forward Kyle Young

Four-star power forward Kyle Young is one of the more versatile prospects in the Buckeye State. The 6-foot-7 Young is capable of playing both inside and out, and has had a good start to his junior year which has led to more offers.

“It has been great so far,” said Young of the season. “We have a big win over Huntington Prep and have been playing well in general.”

He continued about his own play, “Individually I have been working on stretching my game out to be more comfortable on the wing, and not just being stuck down in the post.”

On the recruiting trail more and more schools are coming in to see Young, but he says four are showing him the most interest at the moment.

“I would say the four schools recruiting me the hardest are Butler, Clemson, Purdue, and Michigan,” noted Young.

The most recent offer for Young came from John Beilein and the Michigan Wolverines. Michigan has had a lot of success recruiting within the state of Ohio recently, and Young is now a priority recruit.

“It was great to add another Big Ten offer,” said Young of Michigan. “It means a lot to hear from them, and it is a school I like.”

One school that has been heavily involved with Young for a while is Butler. Young has been to the Butler campus before, and the staff has made sure to make him feel wanted.

“I am a really big target for them in the 2017 class,” said Young of the Bulldogs. “I liked when I went down there, and they have a good program and a good coaching staff.”

For now Young says he has no plans to make any unofficial or official visits set up, nor does he have any timetable for a potential college decision.
