2 Offers and Leader for Ga. Back

<a href="http://gavsv.com/fbsch/dispteam.php?team=tuck">Tucker</a> tailback <b>Brandon Young</b> spent most of last season running behind Georgia-signee <b>Thomas Brown</b>. When Thomas went out late in the year with an injury, Brandon stepped right in and performed extremely well. At least 2 schools have already have already taken notice by extending Young an offer, and that list is sure to keep growing.

"I have offers from Maryland and Oklahoma State. My top five is Maryland, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Georgia, and Georgia Tech," Brandon Young said.

When I spoke to Brandon last, the Pokes' of OSU had a decisive advantage. That's not the case any longer.

"Maryland is my leader now. Me and Coach Brattan have developed a real good relationship and we talk about everything. He said I could play both sides of the ball so I wouldn't have to choose a position, and I really like that."

What does Young like about the other schools on his list?

Oklahoma State: "They're not real deep at running back, and I like that they offered me as a tailback."

Oregon: "I've always liked Oregon growing up. They send me a whole lot of mail."

Georgia: "It would give me a chance to stay close to home so my family could watch."

Georgia Tech: "Same as Georgia, it would give me a chance to stay at home. I think I could play early at Tech."

What's the most important recruiting factor for Brandon?

"Playing time. I don't want to go somewhere and sit on the bench. If I have to redshirt that's fine, but I don't want to sit all 4 years."
