Young Waiting To Name A Leader

Palm Beach Gardens, FL DE Willie Young has a tough decision to make between two schools he's seen and two he has yet to visit. We caught up with him tonight to talk about his situation.

Willie Young of Palm Beach Gardens, FL is one of the most impressive defensive ends we've seen this year. His father told us that many schools around the country agree.

"Yeah, a number of schools say they have him number one," his dad said. "He's working on his grades right now. He won't be back to play basketball until after signing day."

Willie spoke highly of his Ohio State visit, which he took two weekends ago.

"I loved everything about it," he said. "I loved everything about it a lot.

"The facilities were great, the coaches were great... They'll be one of my final schools."

Willie had already been to been to NC State and has two more visits to go.

"I didn't go anywhere last weekend. I still got Florida and Georgia," he said.

Is there a leader yet?

"You know, I don't know," he said. "I won't know until I see them all."

It's pretty cold in Ohio right now, but Willie says the weather isn't an issue.

"No, I am just not going to let weather be a factor in this decision," he said. "It didn't bother me when I was up there."

Willie is working to get qualified academically. He said his core is solid and he's working on his test score.

"I've already taken it and I'm close," he said.
