"I'm probably going to camp at all of the Carolina schools showing interest this summer," he said. "I'm actually going to Duke's this Sunday. Depending on how summer goes I want to make my decision by August 21st before my senior year starts. I want to go to a college program that will welcome me like family, one that my Mom and Dad both like, and has great academics. Of course, I want to play for a team that plays good football."
Young plays for one now. The Huskies are coming off a 10-2 season in 2013 and Young says this year's team is stacked with players like Bell, Tucker Jr., Van Smith, and Mark Fields.
A torn ACL kept Young from competing as a sophomore, but in his first year as a starter in 2013, he recorded 101 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles and was named first team All-Conference in 4A/5.
