Albert Young: "No Comment"

Albert Young's visit to Iowa might have changed his opinion about where he's headed to school. Reached late Monday night at his home, Young said he has no comment on the situation.

Albert Young has been one of the most enjoyable recruits to cover for Badger Nation this season because he has never been short of words throughout the process.

Young is a bright, funny athlete that has shared his thoughts with us on and off the record for months. Until now.

Reached at his home late Monday night, moments after hanging up the phone with Wisconsin Coach Barry Alvarez, Young said he has nothing else to say about his recruiting decision.

"I have no comment, because I don't know what I'm doing," Young said.

Sources close to the Iowa program are indicating Young might be changing his allegiance from Bucky to the Hawkeyes.

But it doesn't sound like the decision has been made yet. The tide could turn once again tomorrow, when Alvarez pays Young a home visit.

Young also has a visit scheduled to Boston College this weekend, and told Badger Nation last week he will likely take a trip to Miami.

Young indicated last week he was very interested in talking to Michael Turner, the tailback from Fort Worth Dunbar still considering Wisconsin. He was interested in learning what the UW and Iowa staffs have been telling him, and where he might be leaning.

But Turner cancelled his trip to Iowa at the last minute, visiting Ball State instead. Turner has a visit to Wisconsin scheduled for this weekend.

There will likely be a few more twists and turns before the Young saga is over.

One quote that's already been brought up by Wisconsin fans is one spoken by Young himself on Dec. 10, in an interview with Badger Nation Magazine prior to his commitment.

"I don't want to give the coaches a commitment and not stick by it," Young said. "Because I read about a lot of kids that (de-commit) and I don't want to do that to anybody," Young said. "When I commit to a school, it's going to be solid.

Whether that will ring true or not remains to be seen.
