In his four seasons at Rutgers, Young appeared in 121 career games.
The news of Young entering the portal comes after Johnson made the decision on Thursday. Johnson was the team’s leading rebounder and led the B1G in blocked shots, earning him B1G All-Defensive Team honors.
Rutgers finished the season with a 10-10 record in B1G play and was 16-12 overall. Young will have one year of eligibility remaining at his next destination.
