Devils Still In Good Shape With Top WR?

In need of a big time wide receiver for the class of 2004 Ted Roof and the Blue Devils have set their sights on Seattle O'Dea High standout Chancellor Young. The 6-foot-2 , 205 pounder recently visited Durham and is now nearing a decision.

"I've got two more visits to go – UCLA on the 23rd and Notre Dame on the 30th," said Chancellor Young. "After that I am going to weigh the pros and cons of each school and then I'll make a decision."

Aside form the Irish and Bruins Young says he's also visited Duke, Oregon, and Washington this winter, with the Blue Devils making the biggest impression.

"I loved the atmosphere at Duke when I was there. A lot of schools are in that area, and that makes it fun. It kind of reminded me of home since it was snowing here [Washington state] when I left and it was snowing there when I arrived."

The son of former NFL standout Charles Young, Chancellor sports a 3.0 GPA and has already achieved an 1140 on the SAT.

During his senior season he made the biggest impact on the defensive side of the ball where he recorded 84 tackles, one interception, and one sack while being one of just four Washington state players to be named to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl January 3rd in San Antonio.

He is rated as the nation's 39th best receiver prospect thanks to his 6-foot-2, 205 pound frame and soft hands. Couple that with a 4.3 recorded time in the forty and you've got a big time target for the Devils.

Young is rated as a three star prospect.
