Starting alongside three highly rated prospects in the national junior class for Team CP3, the value Jaydon Young brings to floor should not go unnoticed. While there are a lot of scoring options on his travel team, Young embraces his role in connecting on open shots and playing strong and aggressive on both ends of the floor.

“I feel like I can contribute at any time,” Young said. “Playing on this team, I feel I can affect the game in many different ways.”

As season visiting approaches in a few weeks, Young has already been on the campuses of Elon, Wake Forestand Virginia Tech. In addition to three programs Young says Cincinatti, Georgia Techand Pittsburgh are high major programs he heard from. He discussed a few of them with 247Sports:

Cincinnati: “I talk to Chris LePore mainly but I also talk to Wes Miller. They were both telling me how I can fit in their program. They like bigger guards. Coach Miller used to coach right down the street at UNC-Greensboro. He has seen me play a lot and told me what he likes about my game a lot. Hopefully, I can get down there soon.”

Pittsburgh:”Jeff Capel hit me up a lot. It is a good environment whenever I am around him. They are going to make sure life is going good. It’s not just about basketball with them.”

Wake Forest:”Steve Forbes and all the coaches talk to me from there. I went to the game and talked to coaches after it. It was a good visit overall when I went there.”

Virginia Tech: “The visit went great. I loved it. Christian Webster is my guy. He will hit me up, make sure I am good, and check on me outside of basketball. He is a good guy. The environment felt like home.”

While he has experience taking visits, Young has yet to take an official. He says he plans to schedule one with Virginia Tech soon while also hinting at a potential visit to North Carolina A&T.

In terms of his decision, Young is thinking about committing at a time after the conclusion of Nike EYBL’s Peach Jam in July. However, nothing is finalized at the moment.

Rated a three-star prospect, Young is ranked no. 132 overall in the 247Sports Top 150 Player Rankings.
