From Jersey to Madison

New Jersey running backs have been very good to the Wisconsin football program. Ron Dayne and Anthony Davis have both come from the Garden State. Moorestown speedster Albert Young may also end up in Madison.

"I have about 20 scholarship offers right now," said running back Albert Young.

"Wisconsin, Virginia, Boston College, Penn State, Miami, Colorado and Iowa are my favorites.

"The only official visit I have set up right now would be Wisconsin. I'm going to visit them on December 6th. I'm going to set up Virginia tonight and I'm pretty sure that will be on December 13th.

"All of my favorites have offered except for Penn State, Miami and Colorado. I think Iowa will offer if I tell them I want to visit.

"Wisconsin is definitely my favorite right now. Ron Dayne and Anthony Davis are both from New Jersey and Wisconsin has a tradition of producing very good running backs.

"Wisconsin was the first to offer me a scholarship and I really like their coaches."

Young, a 5-foot-10, 205-pounder, from Moorestown, New Jersey is a four-year varsity starter on both sides of the ball.

Young rushed for 2,007 yards and 25 touchdowns as a sophomore, he rushed for 1,200 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior while missing four games with an injury and was named all-state as both a sophomore and a junior.

"I'm looking for a school that's going to give me great academic support. I'd like to have tutors available if I need them. Tradition is also important. I want to make sure the coaches help me graduate and get my degree." Young said.
