West Virginia Lands Young
The high school coach of Franklin Young called to report that his top prospect had reached a decision.
According to Barry Taylor, Young committed to West Virginia over the weekend. "I think it was the fact he has an opportunity to go and play some as a freshman" Taylor said. "Their style of play is perfect for him. They are interchangeable. Their two, three and the four play the same position. I think that was the deciding factor for him."
Last season, Young averaged 19 points and 10 rebounds. "He has a great work ethic and he's going to work his butt off to try and get on the floor as a freshman."
Young visited West Virginia the final weekend of August. He had a visit scheduled with Tulane but won't make the trip.
"He's a super kid and I think it's a great fit for him."
