This guy Caleb Freeman is a warrior!! He was on his way to watch me play for the 1st time when he got in a major car accident… this kid has battled & battled and I’m so glad I was able to help put a smile on his face by giving him some gifts & my 22 Assist game shoes🙏🏽 https://t.co/NO7Jv3I817
The Oklahoma guard said he gave Caleb Freeman shoes from his 22-assist game, which occurred on Dec. 19 in a win over Northwestern State. Young also scored 26 points in the game.
Freeman and his brother, Clayton, were injured in a car accident on the way to that game driving on I-35. While his brother was released from the hospital shortly after, Caleb suffered major brain trauma and didn’t speak his first words until the end of February.
Young is considered the No. 6 overall prospect in the 2018 NBA draft by Bleacher Report’s Jonathan Wasserman.
