There won't be much suspense at the top of the WNBA Draft, as the “Three to See” — Baylor's Brittney Griner, Delaware's Elena Delle Donne and Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins — are all but guaranteed to come off the board with the first three picks.
After that, who knows?
Teams that specifically mentioned Young as a potential target in WNBA.com's draft preview include the Seattle at No. 6, Connecticut at No. 11 and defending champion Indiana at No. 9.
Even after getting drafted, officially making a WNBA team out of training camp will still be a task for Young, as the roster size limit is 11 players.
But Monday night should provide Young with the first step in her professional basketball journey.
“My senior year is when I really knew I wanted to play pro,” Young told WNBA.com this week. “But this year is when I realized I had a shot.”
