Scouting Report
  • Strengths:

    Young is one of the most explosive players in the class of 2013. A talented wing who is absolutely wired to score, he can score at all three levels. He also possesses that killer instinct that allows him to take over games. He is also a fantastic rebounder for his position and an active defender.

  • Weaknesses:

    As he continues to transition to playing shooting guard more, Young must tighten up his handle. In addition, Young has a tendancy to take plays off at times and has to work on being more aggressive.
