The signing of 6-9 University of Wyoming transfer Trace Young assures the John A. Logan basketball team of a formidable front line. Young averaged 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game for Wyoming whom competes in the Mountain West conference last season. He can play any position including point guard.
A possible front line could include 7-2 Jamarion Sharp, 6-8 Sydney Curry and Young, 6-9. They will join with NJCAA All-American Jay Scrubb who last season led the Vols to a record of 27-5 and a ranking of fifth nationally.
"We are excited about our recruiting class and all the possibilities," said Volunteer coach Kyle Smithpeters. "With Scrubb on one side and Young on the other we will be hard to defend."
Young played one year at Mt. Zion Prep in Baltimore where he averaged 15 points. 5 rebounds and 3 assists per game. Originally from Owensboro, Ky., Young played high school ball at North Hardin High School in Kentucky.
"Trace Young is a young man with tremendous talent, who can play anywhere on the floor from the point position to the four spot," said Wyoming coach Allen Edwards in the Cowboy media guide. "He handles it well, shoots it well and defends well."
