Northwestern transfer Ryan Young is getting an impressive list of visits together as he prepares to make his transfer portal decision.

Young is planning to visit Duke, Boston College, Georgia Tech and Georgetown, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein. He also might visit Notre Dame and possibly Miami, Rothstein added.

Young started 31 games as a freshman at Northwestern in 2019-20 but largely came off the bench the last two seasons. He averaged 9.0 points and 4.2 rebounds per game in 31 appearances this past season while also shooting 55% from the field. He entered the transfer portal March 24, and is now starting to focus in on a potential destination.

Young was a three-star recruit from the Class of 2018 and the No. 4 recruit from the state of Pennsylvania that year, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.
