Sam Young's offer list reads like a who's-who in college football. USC, Nebraska, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida, Miami, they're all there and they all want the St. Thomas Aquinas offensive lineman in the worst way. Young reports, however, that two schools seem to be showing him the most love right now. "Right now probably Penn State, Florida (are recruiting the hardest). I'm receiving handwritten letters left and right, they told me they're going to recruit me hard and they've followed up with it. ). All schools are attacking from all angles," he said. Young claims no current leader at this time.
The University of Nebraska probably wouldn't mind having an offensive lineman of Sam's caliber within their ranks and Sam reports that they've been making their presence known as well. "As of late I've been getting mail keeping me up to date on players, Coach Callahan, stuff of that nature. They've been fairly consistent with their mailing and with their recruiting," he said. Young reports that while one day he may get two handwritten letters and one informational from Nebraska, that can flip flop on any given day.
Young currently has no plans for any unofficial visits, nor does he have any camps picked out that he would like to attend. At this point, both are up in the air in terms of where he might attend. He did mention that quite a few schools have been out to check out he and his fellow teammates. "We've had over fifteen colleges visit at my school," he said. Some of the institutions that showed up were UCLA, Purdue and North Carolina.
We will continue to follow Sam's recruitment up until he makes his eventual decision and on to Signing Day 2006.
