"In the morning I get up and go to the weight room to lift and then I condition and run in the afternoon," Young told TheInsiders.com when asked about his summer regimen.
He got a little dinged up at O'Dea's team camp at Central Washington
University in Ellensburg, but it wasn't anything serious. "Well, I
went for a tackle, and my teammates were helping and hit me when I
made the tackle," Chancellor said. "They took me to the hospital for
a strained neck, but it was just a precaution. They told me to take
it easy for two and a half weeks, and I'm 100 percent now. It set me
back a little bit. I was thinking about going to the Nike and (James)
Hasty camp, but couldn't."
Young has also been running in the Junior Olympics. "I'm running the
100, 200 and 4X100 relay," he said. "I'm running on the fastest relay team
in Washington. We're running around 41.25." His fastest time for the
100 meters this summer is around 10.8.
Chancellor isn't in any hurry when it comes to recruiting, but don't
expect him to go all the way to February before he announces his
intentions. "I want to get the full experience," he said. "I don't
want to make a commitment right away, but I don't want to wait too
long either. I want to see what all the schools have to offer.
"I have a general feeling for the west coast schools, the Pac-10
schools. I've seen all of them before or know a lot about them. I
want to find out more about the midwest and east coast schools,
schools you don't hear a lot about here."
Chancellor mentioned Penn State, Notre Dame and Nebraska as three
schools that fit that profile, but also mentioned Washington, Oregon,
USC and Cal as other schools he wants to continue to research.
Young has offers from Washington, Notre Dame and California, but then
added, "Washington's the only one I'm 100 percent sure about."
Speaking of the Huskies, has the situation surrounding ex-UW Head
Coach Rick Neuheisel affected the local school's chances with Young?
"If I do choose to go to Washington, it'll have more to do with how
they are as a program," he said. "They have a rich tradition, and
that's one of the things I'm looking at. I want to play for a
program that has a rich tradition or are on the rise back to
"Coach Neuheisel is a great guy and I had a few little conversations
with him, but I really have had a lot more contact with Mr. (Keith)
The other question Young needs to have answered is where he's going to
play in college. "I think most of the schools are just looking for
the best athletes and then are putting them where they fit in best,"
he said. "I would love to be a receiver in college, just because my
Dad (Charle) was a tight end and I've always seen myself as an
offensive player. But if I'm in the program I want to be in and it
looks like defense is the best place for me, I can be a safety too."
