Sorry football, this is another basketball post. It’s a significant recruiting item.
St. Benedict’s Prep F Mike Young will announce his college choice Saturday, head coach Mark Taylor confirms to @snytv. MCA says Pitt or UF

A bit surprising in that Mike Young had not indicated that he was going to be making a decision this soon. So, there is always reason to be nervous. Especially if Billy Donovan and Florida are the other finalist.
Young is a big target for Pitt. He’s a Pittsburgh native who started at Shadyside Aacademy before heading to New Jersey for better basketball competition.
Young is a consensus 4-star power forward. He’s 6-8 and somewhere between 210-225 pounds. He plays in the post. Even better, wants to play in the post.
