A five-star point guard from the heart of Big 12 country, Norman North High (Okla.) senior Trae Young made his college basketball destination official Thursday just after noon.

A dynamic 6-foot-2, 170-pound play-maker who is ranked the 14th-best prospect nationally in the Class of 2017 by, Young’s options came down to choosing between the University of Kansas and Oklahoma.

Play for Bill Self at Allen Fieldhouse? Or stay at home and star in your own backyard for Lon Kruger at OU?

Ultimately, Young went with the Sooners.

It had to be a difficult, yet exciting, decision for Young, as he weighed the pros and cons of his options.

Young’s choice was big news not just in Lawrence, but also in his home state, where The Oklahoman covered his announcement live.
