"He liked my film and how I'm athletic. He said all the Nebraska coaches like me and how I move around the field."
John Curtis has produced a couple of Cornhusker signees over the past few years.
"I'm excited to get this new offer," he said. "It feels good. Coach Els told me to keep in touch."
Young ranked third on the team in tackles for Curtis, which captured the national championship as determined by FOXSportsNEXT.com Director of Scouting Scott Kennedy.
The junior says he's not sure which program will offer next.
