NORMAN, Okla. — Friday against Iowa State might be Trae Young's last home game at Oklahoma. It might not.

The nation's leader in scoring (28.0) and assists (9.0) says he's not sure if he will decide to leave for the NBA draft.

"Right now, my focus is on this team," Young said. "After this season, I'll sit down with my family and we'll discuss my future. But right now, that's not my focus. After the season, I'll focus on that stuff."

Young's father, Ray, has repeatedly said that Young's plan was not to leave after one year, but the Sooner star's rise up the NBA draft boards — he's considered by some to be even a top 5 pick — has seemed to put more pressure on him to leave.

"I don't know what the future is going to hold for me, but I know what tomorrow is," Young said. "I’m just gonna go out and have fun and leave it all out there for Sooner nation and for my teammates."
