B2G ELITE: SC wants some Pie

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Keyshawn "Pie" Young showed off his athletic ability day one of the B2G Elite Camp after discussing a impending trip to USC this weekend.

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 California.”

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 that.

“He just wants me to come out and be a Trojan - to experience the West Coast.”

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.”
