Mike Young Chooses Pitt Over Florida
Mike Young has committed to Pitt for the 2013 season, the first of the class for Jamie Dixon.
Young is a power forward who will play for St. Benedict's in New Jersey next season.
“(Dixon) wanted me really bad,” said Young, who will play the upcoming season for St. Benedict’s (N.J.) Prep, one of the nation’s top high school teams. “I was his No. 1 priority. He was so excited, he was stumbling over his words. He said he can’t wait to talk to me some more.”
Young is ranked 67th in the nation by ESPN and 102nd by Rivals.com.
Young chose Pitt over Florida, his other finalist. Young also had offers from Connecticut, Miami, Massachusetts, Memphis, Xavier, St. John’s, N.C. State, Seton Hall, Rutgers, West Virginia and Georgia Tech.
