Young Has Two More Visits

Four-star River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian linebacker Kenny Young visited Oklahoma State this past weekend and still has visits to LSU and UCLA on the docket...

River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian linebacker Kenny Young is scheduled to be one of the premier announced commitments on Signing Day, so at this point, he isn't giving much away in terms of his recruitment.

On Sunday night, after visiting Oklahoma State, Young recapped the trip, but wasn't particularly revealing.

"It went real well," said Young. "I had been there before so I had seen most of the campus and the facilities. I really knew what it was like, but this was the first time for my parents to see it. I think they liked it and thought it was good."

Young said the visit emphasized contact with he and his parents and the Cowboys coaches and the players.

"Spending time with the players and getting to know them was a big part of it for me," Young said.

As for his schedule, the 6-2, 225-pound Young will be busy cramming in two more visits before the recruiting period goes dead next Sunday.

Young will arrive in Baton Rouge this Sunday night to begin his official visit with LSU.

It's been a busy week for Young as he first left Louisiana on Wednesday for an official visit to Arkansas. From there he went straight to the Oklahoma State visit and will return home to New Orleans on Sunday afternoon.

From there, Young will hop in the car and drive to Baton Rouge to begin his official Sunday night. He'll be hosted by former John Curtis teammate Duke Riley.

In addition to his visits to Fayetteville and Stillwater, Young has also taken an official to Texas A&M. His final visit will be to UCLA next weekend, Jan. 31.

Most feel that LSU and UCLA are the two leaders in Young's recruitment, with the Bruins holding a slight edge over the Tigers heading down the stretch. But LSU has made a strong push since the start of the contact period with the Tiger coaches making several visits to see him in-person these last couple weeks.

LSU still has some work left to accomplish, and this upcoming official visit will go a long way in making that happen. The Tigers should get a better idea where they stand with him leading up to his National Signing Day announcement.
