Iowa Western Community College

Commit Date: Dec. 18, 2013

Stats: Young had 45 tackles, including 13.5 sacks and 20 tackles for a loss in his only season at Iowa Western.

Recruiting Scene: An Iowa commit out of Des Moines (Ia.) Lincoln High School, Young extended his verbal to Western Michigan early in the process before interest increased. In the end he chose the Cardinals over Iowa.

Why Louisville? "It just felt like the right place for me. I really liked the environment. I felt comfortable with the coaches and with the players."

Picked U of L over: Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Western Michigan

Scouting Report: A four-star target, Young has the size and ability to contribute immediately. He has quick first step, which should make him an effective pass rusher. Should compete for the open spot created by the graduation of All-American Marcus Smith.
