Young Picks Up Iowa State Offer

"I would love him to stay close to home but as we told him now and last time, we'll support his decision"

Iowa Western (JUCO) defensive end Trevon Young was in Ames earlier this week for an official visit that was kept under wraps until the players began tweeting about a bowling trip. Young left Ames with an offer and visited Ole Miss on Thursday and will be at Louisville over the weekend.

"Trevon said he loved his Iowa State visit, loved the new facilities — he hadn't seen that yet," Regina Young, Trevon's mother, told AllCyclones.com on Thursday. "It's close to home, but at the same time he wants to check out the other options and see what's out there. He's at Ole Miss and thinks it's a beautiful campus.

"We haven't talked as a family about which way he's leaning. We'll have a little family meeting Monday."

Young is a former Des Moines Lincoln standout whose scholarship to Iowa was revoked after he was twice arrested after his junior season of high school. The 6-foot-4 end enrolled at Iowa Western C.C., where he broke the school record for sacks in a season.

Young again has an offer from Iowa (he'll have three seasons of eligibility). The Cyclones last time thought they were in the lead for Young before the Hawkeyes swooped in. Young's girlfriend attends Iowa State and accompanied him during his official visit and his mother would prefer him in Ames.

"I would love him to stay close to home but as we told him now and last time, we'll support his decision," Regina Young said.

"Iowa is still something that he'd consider, he hasn't ruled them out."

Young was committed to Western Michigan earlier in the recruiting process. He will sign Wednesday.
