Oklahoma PG Trae Young had the national spotlight on him all of last season. He was one of the most electrifying players in the league as he launched 30-foot threes at whim and dished out double-digit assists.

It's the constant eyes on Young that makes his father, Ray, confident his son would thrive in a city with the brightest of spotlights in the NBA.

New York City, of course.

Young, who won the Peach Jam with MoKan Elite and then captured a gold medal with the USA U18 team at the FIBA Americas Championship, broke down all six schools for Rivals.com. He also said he plans to visit all six and may wait until the winter to decide.

Fresh off winning the Peach Jam championship on Sunday afternoon, Trae Young is now with the USA U18 National Team and hoping to win a gold medal at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Chile.

"I had the opportunity to win Peach Jam, probably the best tournament in high school basketball," the 6-foot-2 Young said by phone from Houston. "And to go win a gold medal is, I feel like a great summer for me. I'm excited. Hopefully, I'll have the opportunity for that."

Young is now playing with his MoKan Elite teammate Michael Porter Jr. - the two were Co-MVPs of the Peach Jam - and also with Mohamed Bamba and Quade Green of the PSA Cardinals, the team MoKan vanquished 93-65 in Sunday's final.
