Standout RB Likes UM

This talented running back prospect has been talking with UM coaches while awaiting a scholarship offer. Read on to get the latest and find out why he likes UM.

At 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds, Moorestown, N.J. standout running back Albert Young has helped his team reach the state semi-finals.

"We just to have to finish strong and win these last couple games," he said. "I'm only 362 yards away from becoming south Jersey's all-time leading rusher, but that doesn't matter to me right now. I want to win it all. That's more important to me."

Young, whose 860 SAT scores makes him a full qualifier inside the classroom, also talked about the recruiting process.

"It's actually sort of winding down some," he said. "Not as many coaches are calling since I've been setting up my visits. I've got Wisconsin (Dec. 6 or Dec. 13, depending on state title game), Boston College, and Iowa (Jan. 17). I'm not sure on Penn State now because I guess they have some guys committed. I'll probably also check out Virginia or Rutgers. I'm saving a spot for Miami too, so we'll see what happens with that."

The standout running back talked more about his situation with the Hurricanes.

"I talked to them a little over two weeks ago," he said. "I actually called [Greg Mark] last night on his cell phone to see if they had gotten the film we sent. They haven't offered me yet."

Young said he is hoping to hear from Miami very soon again.

"Coach Mark said they'd let me know about their final evaluations of my tape," he said. "If they like it and offer me a trip, I'm going. If they offer me a scholarship, they'll definitely be at the top of my list because they're the No. 1 team in the land. You can't beat that."
