Trae Young visit schedule set; visiting UK for Big Blue Madness

Trae Young is set to be in Lexington, Lawrence, and Norman this fall.

We now know when Trae Young will officially visit the Kentucky Wildcats.

On Wednesday, the five-star point guard out of the 2017 class announced the dates for five of his visits, which includes UK from Oct. 14-16.

This is great news for UK, as his visit will fall in line with Big Blue Madness. Getting targets to visit for arguably UK's biggest recruiting event is always a great sign for where they stand with various prospects.

Right now, Young is the best point guard that Kentucky is seriously in the running for, so getting him in Lexington for BBM is a great step towards securing his commitment.

But this won't be an easy fight with the home-state Sooners coming on strong in his recruitment. I still give UK the edge, especially with a decision probably coming in December for Young.
