So who is the best high school football player in Illinois? A lot of people in the inner recruiting circles feel that Mt. Carmel’s Steven Filer and St. Rita’s Darius Fleming are the cream of the crop but there’s a young man at the other end of the state making plenty of noise.

“I have offers from Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Kansas State, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue and I got an offer from Florida this past week,” said David Young, a 6-foot-6, 275-pound, offensive tackle, from Edwardsville.

“Nebraska was the first school to offer me a scholarship and that came when I was a sophomore. Kansas State was my first offer as a junior and the rest came during the spring and summer of this year.”

We asked Young if he has begun to narrow his college choices and if he has set up any of his official visits.

“I really haven’t narrowed things down or at least I haven’t called any schools yet and told them I was no longer interested in them.” Young said.

“I can tell you that the four schools that I like the most right now are Nebraska, Illinois, Wisconsin and Florida.

“I haven’t set up any official visits yet. I’m not in a hurry to make a decision. I’ll take my visits after the season and make a decision after that.”

Young is a three-year varsity starter for Edwardsville. He has started on both sides of the ball the past two seasons and moves extremely well for a big man. David is also solid in the classroom carrying a 2.4 core GPA and scoring a 20 on his ACT.
