After a great conversation with @CoachHuggs I’m thankful and blessed to receive my first P5 offer from West Virginia University. Thanks to everyone on the coaching staff who has been a part of my recruitment. @wvuhoops @RonEverhart #AGTG pic.twitter.com/iOpeLdmDU9

“I’m really proud of Sharron. He’s worked for every opportunity that he’s had and this is a big one,” MHS head coach Dave Tallman told WV Sports Now. “We thank coach [Bob] Huggins and his staff for this offer.”
Young (6-foot, 150 pounds) is not ranked yet by the main recruiting databases but holds offers from Drexel, Mount St. Mary’s, Radford, Southeastern Louisiana, SC State, West Virginia and Youngstown State. Young led Morgantown HS to back-to-back WV Class 4A State Championship’s in 2022 and 2023.
Young recently visited West Virginia in February.
“Overall, it was an awesome unofficial visit. I feel extremely blessed to have had the full game day experience from watching the team walkthrough, touring the facility, meeting the coaching staff, being on the court during warm-up and attending the game with my family,” he said. “Being a kid from Morgantown, you grow up dreaming of a day like this. I think wearing the blue and gold means a lot when you’re from West Virginia.”
Coach Tallman went into detail about how Young has improved during his time at MHS.
“Sharron continues to improve each day and works hard in the weight room to get bigger and stronger. He’s a great kid off the court but a ‘dawg’ on the floor. He really knows how to flip that switch. He’s extremely fast and is a great floor general. His toughness is always present. He plays with a chip on his shoulder,” Tallman said. “We’re excited to have him back for one more run.”
