Young takes in Nebraska

Doc Sadler and crew hosted junior college small forward Jerran Young over the weekend. What did the Texas native think of his visit? He talks with Big Red Report inside.

Evan Goodman wasn't the only Nebraska official visitor this weekend. Doc Sadler and the basketball crew hosted Jerran Young, a 6-foot-5 small forward/guard from McLennan Community College (Waco, Texas) on Saturday.

"The visit was very good, it was the first time being in Nebraska," stated Young to Big Red Report on his way back to Waco. "It's a little different than Texas. I went to the football game and the crowd was nuts.

"We just went out to eat, played in some open gym, went to the game, and after the game went to the downtown area and just hung out."

In his first year with the Highlanders, Young was a staple on offense – averaging second on the team in scoring with 10.4 points per game. McLennan went 26-5 in 2010-11, making it to the second round of the Region V junior college basketball tournament before being knocked out. Young also averaged 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists a game.

"I played with the guys in open gym. I think I did pretty good – I really meshed with some of them," said Young. "As far as last year, we had a pretty good team, so it was a lot of fun. I really went to juco because of my academics, but now I'm good to go."

Also looking at the swingman is Washington, Oregon, Baylor, Wichita State, and Oklahoma State.

"Oklahoma State and Nebraska have offered. Oregon has just talked to me as well," said Young. "I would like to make my decision sometime in November.

"I would say Nebraska will be in it at the end of my decision."

Young played for Cedar Hill (TX) in high school. During his senior season, Cedar Hill was the 2009 state championship runner-up team. He averaged 10 points, eight rebounds, and 10 assists a game.
