Young Looking At Five

Tallahassee Wildcats shooting guard Franklin Young has already taken one official visit. He'll likely take a few more this month.

West Virginia Conducted Visit

Franklin Young participated at the 2002 Nike All-American Camp and played with John Adkins on the Tallahassee Wildcats. The 6-5 Young carved out himself a reputation as a shooter. Now, he's got a nice list of five schools.

West Virginia, Tulane, Florida A&M, Georgia Southern and Florida State have shown interest. Each school, minus Florida State, has offered him a scholarship. In fact, he's already taken one official visit.

Last weekend, he tripped to West Virginia. "It went fine," Young said. "I met with all the coaches and the players. I like the school atmosphere."

Tulane is going to receive a visit from Young this month though the date is not set in stone. Florida A&M and Georgia Southern are also likely contenders for official visits.

"I want to play in a system where I can shoot the ball, shoot the three a lot and create. I'll be looking at the coaches and good the program is both academic and athletic."

Young averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds last year. He had a high game of 29 points and was an honorable-mention all-state performer.
