The 6-foot-2, 185-pound PG from Houston, Texas was ranked by 247Sports coming out of high school as a 4-star prospect. Young was seen as the No. 106 player overall in the Class of 2016.
Rutgers’ 2018 recruiting class consists of one 4-star recruit currently in Montez Mathis and is ranked as the No. 40 class in the country. In 2017, Rutgers put together the No. 63 class and did not land a 4-star commit.
