Verbal commitment Verbally committed to Butler

Young took an unofficial visit to Purdue in September with two other players and eventually received an offer from the Boilermakers. Also tripped to Wisconsin for a football game and planned to head to Minnesota the last weekend of October as well. Young, whose DB Hoops summer program rides with Under Armour, is the first prospect to receive an offer since Wisconsin's UA deal was announced. He sports other offers from Illinois, Davidson, DePaul, Clemson, Creighton, Kent State, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Toledo and Xavier. He's a good scorer and rebounder who still has the potential to play either forward spot at the next level. There's a good chance he ends up playing against the Badgers down the road. Young will attend one of his five finalists, announced in July: Ohio State, Michigan, Clemson, Butler or Purdue.
