Trae Young took the college basketball world by storm, relatively overnight. FS1 analyst Nick Bahe thinks highly of Young at the next level, and has ranked him No. 1 on his list of best point guards in the NBA draft.

Young is ranked ahead of Alabama’s Collin Seton, Villanova’s Jalen Brunson, Kentucky’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and UCLA’s Aaron Holiday.
Young was a McDonald’s All-American, and was Oklahoma’s first five-star basketball recruit since 2010. He left college basketball with many records and awards, including consensus All-American honors and led the nation in points per game and assists per game.
Despite climbing high in national polling and a stellar beginning to the season, Oklahoma faltered in the back half of conference play, and lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to Rhode Island. Young had 28 points, seven assists, and five rebounds in the loss.
