Local Player’s Dreams of Playing for Mountaineers Could Soon Come True

Morgantown, West Virginia – This past weekend, local star basketball player Sharron Young took a very short trip to his dream school. Young, a 6’0 point guard for Morgantown High School, had an unofficial visit to West Virginia University, where he has always dreamed of playing.

Young, a 2024 recruit who is averaging 21 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists per game for the Mohigans, currently holds offers from Drexel, Mount St. Mary’s, Radford and Southeastern Louisiana, but obviously West Virginia would jump to the top of his list if/when he’s offered by the school. It’s unclear whether Young was offered a scholarship during his visit over the weekend, but he did post on social media, saying that he had a great visit and thanked the coaching staff for the hospitality.

Young led Morgantown High to a Class AAAA state championship last season and the Mohigans are 19-2 overall and 4-0 in the region this season. With Kedrian Johnson graduating this season and Joe Toussaint having only one year of eligibility remaining, the Mountaineers will have a real need at the point guard position soon.

Local star Sharron Young could be the perfect player to step in and be the next leader of the West Virginia Mountaineers.
