We look at five prospect going under the radar in Southwest Ohio for the 2014 recruiting class…
Young Going Under the Radar
If college coaches are looking for a player with a combination of speed and toughness they should look towards Miamisburg (Ohio) defender Robert Young. At 6-foot-1, 185-pounds, Young can play safety or grown into an outside linebacker at the next level with his track speed (23.15 200 meter dash). Friday night it was Young who saved Miamisburg's first shutout of the season when he used that speed to make a touchdown saving tackle against Xenia. "Our coaches always teach us never to give up on a play," said Young. "We wanted our first shutout of the season, so I just dug down deep and made the play." Friday's win places the Vikings as one of the most improved programs in Southwest Ohio the past two seasons. "It's a blessing to be 6-1," he said. "It shows that our hard work is paying off. We're starting to get a lot of attention in our school and our classmates are now cheering us on. We love the energy they bring and want more." With programs from the Mid-American Conference starting to take notice, Young hopes to also visit some other programs. "I'd like to visit Illinois and some other Big Ten schools," he said. Young will lead Miamisburg this week against 6-1 Springboro in a game that could determine the GWOC South champion.
