Directly following the announcement of new head coach Mo Williams, from the NBA, Alabama State University announces another star will be joining the the Alabama State University Hornet family; Trace Young.

The former Wyoming University player and three-star recruit, announced he will be transferring to ASU on Fox Sports Radio late Tuesday night. Watch Young’s historical announcement:

Earlier this year, Young made an unprecedented decision to only consider historically Black colleges and universities (HBCU), a move few of his athletic talent have made at this point in their career.

Young narrowed his selection down to 6 HBCUs in the MEAC and SWAC sports conferences: Prairie View A&M University, Mississippi Valley State University, Howard University, Jackson State University, North Carolina A&T State University and Norfolk State University.

We are excited to welcome Trace Young to the HBCU family and look forward to Alabama State University’s official announcement.
