Oklahoma University Compliance Makes Fans Take Down Trae Young Sign
Trae Young attended Monday night’s Oklahoma State-Oklahoma game, won by the Cowboys, 68-66.
The Oklahoma fans put this sign up in an effort to let the uncommitted point guard know they want him. But soon after it was up, Oklahoma compliance made the fans take it down since it’s a recruiting violation.
This sign was hanging in the student section & security guards forced it to be taken down. Big Brother is always watching. Sad! pic.twitter.com/eEGYRglK7u
Young, along with Washington-bound Michael Porter Jr., won the Peach Jam last summer with MoKan Elite.
The 6-10 Porter Jr. said recently he believes Young will land at either Oklahoma or Kansas.
“He hasn’t told me anything, I don’t even think he knows but I’m thinking Oklahoma or Kansas,” Porter Jr. said at the Hoophall Classic, where he was the unofficial Most Outstanding Player.
“I think Oklahoma is best for him because he’ll be able to shine.”
