Young Has Slow Summer
Steelton-Highspire High School running back Jeremiah Young is still waiting for his first offer, but until that comes as he can do is prepare for his senior season and talk to the schools showing him the most interest. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound ball carrier is setting at 6235 career rushing yards and is excited to get a crack at the record this year. "I've been mainly talking to Northwestern, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and Toledo," Young stated. "I heard from most of those schools once a week and have been getting a lot of mail from them too, especially Toledo." "I am supposed to go up to Connecticut sometime soon," Young explained. "I talked to Coach (Hank) Hughes who told me about the school and said they really want to get me on campus. I just know it's cold up there and that they were the Co-Big East Champions in 2007." "I called Pittsburgh twice on July 4th, but haven't heard back from them at all yet, so I'm going to keep trying," Young said. "Pitt is the only school I've visited other than Penn State and it's cool out there. I see good chemistry between the players and coaches and like the atmosphere because it's very similar to my school." "Northwestern also inquired about my SAT score which was an 820 and told me that I need to get it up to a 950 for them. Northwestern and Toledo seem highly interested along with Connecticut." Young rushed for 3344 yards and 37 touchdowns as a junior. He set an all-time rushing record in the Class A title game for most yardage with a 45 carry, 292-yard, four touchdown performance against Serra Catholic.
