#TBT: When Trae Young first transcended Norman

By

Before he was the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, and before he lit up the nation with a virtuous All-American campaign this past winter for the Oklahoma Sooners, Trae Young was just a kid making a name for himself in nearby Norman, Okla.

At Norman North, Young was consistently unconscious, averaging 42 points per game his senior season — including a 65-point game — and winning back-to-back Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the Year honors and a spot on USA TODAY’s ALL-USA Second Team. A consensus top-20 recruit for the 2017 class, Young was his hometown Sooners’ first five-star recruit in nearly a decade.

Our friends at Mars Reel invite you to relive all those glorious games with this highlight reel. Enjoy!
