Miami (Fla.) three-star wide out Keyshawn Young made the long trek to Southern California with two primary objectives in mind.
One, dominate at the B2G Elite Camp and show the nation he is one of
the most underrated wide receiver prospects. Two, unofficially visit
USC and determine if the Trojans football program is a realistic option
come February 2016.
“It was a long trip, but I fought through it,” said Young. “I’m glad to
be here. Tee Martin told me I needed to come out and smell the fresh
air. I’m having a great time so far and enjoying my stay in Southern
USC wide receivers coach Tee Martin is the Trojans lead recruiter for
Young, who was offered a scholarship in April. He called the
scholarship offer “very big” and has maintained constant contact with
USC since that period.
“I communicate with Coach Tee all of the time,” said Young. “He’ll hit
me up on Twitter every morning saying ‘Good morning fam’ and stuff like
“He just wants me to come out and be a Trojan - to experience the West
With USC being on the other side of the country, the distance factor
from Miami is weighted with Young’s interest in the Trojans.
“I have big, big interest in USC,” said Young. “I think more than
anything, they’ve just been recruiting me hard and making feel like
this would be like home.
“I’m trying to get down there this weekend, but I know I’m coming back
for an official visit too.”
While his trip to Southern California for the B2G Elite Camp will give
Young a feel for life away from South Florida, he still has certain
objectives in walking the campus at USC.
“I really need to just see how it is,” said Young. “I need to look
around, see the area, see the people. I want to take it all in.”
Young currently sits on 20 scholarship offers from schools like
Alabama, Georgia, Miami, Florida State, Florida, Clemson and others. At
this point, Young has no interest in narrowing his list of options.
“I’m just focusing on my off season with my high school team right
now,” said Young. “I’m going to enjoy my time out here and then think
about visits and stuff later.”
