Butler nabs top 100 forward Kyle Young

Butler snared a huge committed on Monday, as 6’7″ forward Kyle Young of Jackson (OH) announced his pledged to the Bulldogs. Young is a consensus top 100 player nationally and a multi-skilled forward prospect.

Young previously trimmed his list to included Butler, along with Clemson, Michigan, Purdue and Ohio State. At 200 pounds, Young can add bulk and eventually start in the Big East in either forward slot.

A huge pledge for Butler, and the third member of the 2017 class for the Bulldogs, Young was named first team All-Ohio as a junior after posting 19.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He ran with the King James Shooting Stars in the Nike EYBL.

Young joins a pair of guards, in-state prospect Cooper Neese and Floridian Jerald Butler in the class for the Bulldogs.
