Michael Young is an athletic 6-9 forward that had a solid senior season for Pittsburgh this year, as he averaged roughly 20 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists per game for them.  But up until now, he had not generated much draft buzz.  Right now, he may be a borderline second round candidate to be picked in 2017.
