Young Works With Weber at Camp

After earning his first scholarship offer from his performance at Maryland's camp, Lamar Young was looking to go two-for-two at North Carolina's individual rising senior camp held a couple weekends back.

"I think I did good," said Young. "I hurt my groin the second day, but the first day I did alright."

Young, a 6-foot-4 275-pound offensive lineman from Jonesboro (Ga.) Mundy's Mill, didn't leave Chapel Hill with a UNC scholarship offer, but did receive some promising feedback from his primary recruiter, coach Tommy Thigpen.

"They talked about an offer, but they didn't give me one," said Young. "[Thigpen] just said ‘Would you like to come here?' and ‘What would you think if we offered you?' I told him I'd definitely consider them."

During the camp, Young enjoyed working closely with offensive line coach Mark Weber.

"I liked him, I liked his style of coaching," said Young. "I liked how he taught is everything, and took his time and not getting frustrated with the new kids and everything."

With Maryland the lone school to offer, the Terrapins currently hold the leadership position for Young.

"Maryland is my leader," said Young. "When I went up there, I liked everything."

However, Young, who is also being recruited by Alabama, East Carolina, Purdue, and Central Florida, revealed that a Tar Heel offer change things.

"North Carolina, I could go there, so I'd consider it if they offered," said Young.

For Mundy's Mill High School, Young plays offensive tackle, but is mostly being recruited for guard. This coming season he will also start at defensive tackle.

During his junior season, Young averaged roughly five pancake blocks a game.
