Former Yates High Star Joseph Young Joins Men's Basketball

Aug. 23, 2010

HOUSTON - Former Yates High School star Joseph Young has joined the University of Houston men's basketball program with the start of classes Monday.

Young enrolled and is attending classes as a full-time student. He may practice with the Cougars in 2010-11 but will not compete in any games. He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining with the start of the 2011-12 season.

The son of former Cougar legend and director of basketball operations Michael Young, Joseph Young was ranked among the ESPNU Top 100 2010 recruits and was ranked No. 69 by MaxPreps. He was named the Texas Gatorade Boys' Basketball Player of the Year and was named to the Parade All-America Third Team. Young also was recognized as a Class 4A TABC All-State Team selection.

He led Yates High to a perfect 34-0 record as the school won its second straight Class 4A state championship. A 6-foot-3 guard, he averaged 27.5 points, 4.4 steals, 4.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.

Young was the Most Valuable Player of the state championship game and the T-Mobile Invitational in Alabama. In that latter event, he scored 43 points in the title game, including 24 points during the final five minutes of the second quarter.
