Trevon Young signs with Louisville

The University of Louisville has a new member of the football program after junior-college defensive end Trevon Young signed his letter-of-intent on Wednesday. Young, who will start classes on Jan. 6, is the only prospect the Cardinals are expected to add to the roster during this JUCO signing period, which started today.

Trevon Young is officially a member of the University of Louisville football program, signing his letter-of-intent on Wednesday.

Young is a defensive end from Iowa Western Community College and is originally from Des Moines, Iowa. He spent this season at Iowa Western and committed to Louisville on Monday after a visit last weekend.

The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Young had 45 tackles in his one season at Iowa Western, including 13.5 sacks and 20 tackles for a loss.

Young picked U of L over Mississippi, Iowa and Iowa State. He had been committed to Western Michigan until recently when his phone started blowing up with major college offers.

"Trevon Young is a very athletic defensive end who matches our pressure style of defense," U of L recruiting coordinator Brian Jean-Mary said. "He can play in space as a stand up outside linebacker and rush the passer as a down lineman. We are excited to have him in our program as we believe he will be a great addition to our already talented defensive line."

Young was recently named a National Junior College Coaches Association second-team All-American. Iowa Western, ranked No. 3 in the national junior college rankings, finished the season at 11-1 with a 6-0 win over Butler in the Graphic Edge Bowl.

He's the only JUCO signee for the Cardinals this season. He will begin classes at U of L on Jan. 6 and will be able to participate in spring practice.
