YG’s breakout sophomore season at South Plains College in West Texas has established him as a serious college ball player. Now courting transfer offers from NCAA Division 1 & 2 schools, the future is incredibly bright for a young man whose work ethic and determination to succeed has has always exceeded his prodigious talent levels. His transition to an attacking and dominant big man who can mix it inside the paint, knock down shots from the perimeter, and play 94 feet of defence has made him both a versatile option for Coach Green and the Texans, and a handful for opposition coaches to counter.
A beast on court belies the true character of a man who is passionate about the security and future of his family. His commitment to his own personal success is driven by the desire to lead his siblings and provide the direction and example they need to make good choices and instil the values required to achieve their goals. As a founding member of RedRoo Sports, no one knows the value of work and persistence more than YG – behaviours that now have him on the brink of something special.
