The 6-foot-7. 290-pound Young is strictly set for the offense. He plays tackle for the Raiders, which is his desired position in college. "I don't play defense," he said.
After narrowing down his list to a top-five, Young said he would like to take all of his visits before deciding. "If at any time I feel I'm in the right place, I could decide earlier," he said.
Young said he attended camps last year at Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State and while he didn't go to any Nike Camps, he did attend the Down and Dirty lineman camp in Tampa. "Basically it's just a bunch of lineman bashing heads," he said. "But it was fun. I just got back from Duke and North Carolina, and I'll go to the Junior Day at Florida."
Young reports a max bench-press of 365-pounds and a max squat of 425-430. He said he has a 3.5 grade-point-average and would like to major in business.
