Kalif Young Commits to PC


Kalif Young, a 245 lb center from Mono, Ontario took to Twitter today to announce that he will be attending Providence College in the Fall:


Young joins fellow Friar newcomers Alpha Diallo, Maliek White, and Emmitt Holt on next year’s roster. George Mason transfer Iasaih Jackson will also be eligible next season after sitting out this year after transferring.

Young played last year at Orangeville Prep, a Canadian prep basketball power that in the past has had Thon Maker on its roster. He reportedly chose PC over Marquette, Alabama, and Pittsburgh.

Here are some highlight videos of Kalif Young in action:

Here is a full game video of Orangeville Prep vs. A J. Prep:
