On Monday, Young was named Big 12 Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks. Young is the first freshman in Big 12 history to earn the honor twice in the first three weeks of the season.
Young helped lead the Sooners to a 2-1 week at PK80, averaging 34.7 points, 6.7 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals.
Young has needed just five games to establish himself as a legitimate National Player of the Year candidate. And, in a freshman class centered around the big men—Marvin Bagley, Michael Porter, Mo Bamba, DeAndre Ayton, and Wendell Carter, to name a few—Young has arguably been the most impressive youngster to date.
