The 2016 and 2017 basketball recruiting classes across the state are already shaping up to be very strong, and two of those players recently took another step to prove it.

Mustang’s Jakolby Long, who will be a junior, and Norman North sophomore-to-be Trae Young were both invited to the Nike Elite 100 camp, which is being held this weekend.

Long, a 6-foot-4 point guard, already has multiple offers, including Oklahoma. Young, a 6-foot-2 shooting guard, is beginning to pile up offers as well, with both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State showing strong interest.

The Nike Elite 100 camp generally includes about 70 players from the upcoming junior class and approximately 30 from the sophomore class from around the nation.

Both players have a strong pedigree as well. Long’s father is Mustang coach Terry Long, and Young is the son of former Texas Tech player Rayford Young.
