In news that would make John Calipari rage, Trae Young’s father, Rayford, reportedly wants his son to think about another year in college after Oklahoma‘s first round loss to Rhode Island.
Why consider a terrible life choice after averaging 27 points and nine assists in a more or less electrifying freshman campaign? Apparently to win National Player of the Year… Rayford’s thoughts from Yahoo’s Pat Forde:
“I would love for him to think about coming back and maybe being national player of the year next year,” Rayford Young said, sitting in the front row of the arena after Rhode Island beat Oklahoma 83-78 in overtime. “But it’s his career, his life.”
Young, who scored 28 points in today’s loss, took to Twitter to say he’s “just getting started.”

Obviously Trae shouldn’t even entertain this idea. His stock may have slipped towards the second half of the season as he tossed up bricks on bricks, but he’s still a consensus lottery pick. Draft Express has him going ninth in their latest mock draft, while CBS Sports has him eighth.
