Junior to watch - Chancellor Young

TheInsiders.com caught up Thursday with Chancellor Young, a 6-2, 205-pound athlete from Seattle (Wash.) O'Dea. Young happens to be the youngest son of NFL great Charle Young, so it should come as no surprise that Chancellor is getting a lot of early looks from colleges.

Right now, Young claims offers from Washington, California and Notre Dame, with heavy interest also coming from Michigan State, Penn State, Oregon and Nebraska.

"I think I bring size, speed, and the ability to help our team dig deep to win games," Chancellor told TheInsiders. "A lot of games we play, we're so far ahead it's easy. But in the close ones, like with Bellevue last year, I think I have what it takes to get our team to really dig deep and keep working hard."

Young plays both ways for the Irish, earning all-league honors in 2002. He runs a 4.3 40, 10.5 100 meters, jumps 30 inches in the vertical and benches 285 pounds.

When it comes to recruiting, he knows he's got a lot to do to maintain the integrity and honor of the Young name. Right now he has brothers and sisters that go to Stanford and USC, and his father was a star for the Trojans.

"All I can do is just do the best I can to make my own mark," he said. "It's a standard that I have to live up to, but I want to mold it into my own, leave an indelible mark.

"Everyone is under consideration right now. If someone shows they are serious about me and takes the time to get to know me than I will consider them. I don't want to rule out anybody right now. And staying close to home is something I'm taking under advisement."

Young will travel to Ellensburg this summer to take part in Central Washington's team camp, but the rest of his summer camping schedule is up in the air. "I'm not sure where else I'll go because I'll be doing summer track for the Junior Olympics," Chancellor said. "I'll be running the 100, 200 and possibly a relay."
