DE Young re-commits to Kansas

By Dugan Arnett

The recruiting process of Olathe North High defensive end Kevin Young has taken some interesting turns, but ultimately has led to Kansas University.

A month and a half after de-committing to Kansas in favor of Nebraska, Young has once again changed his mind, according Rivals.com, informing the Jayhawks coaching staff Friday that he will play for KU next fall.

"This has been the hardest decision of my life but I have committed back to Kansas," Young told the Web site. "It came down to two really good schools but I just felt Kansas presented the better opportunity for me. I met with coach Mark Mangino and (defensive coordinator) Clint Bowen today and talked with them about the future. I decided Kansas is the best place for me and they were both very excited."

Young, rated a three-star prospect by Rivals and the No. 5 prospect in the state of Kansas in the Class of 2009, originally committed to the Jayhawks in the summer. But a fall trip to Lincoln, Neb., resulted in a change-of-heart, and he informed Huskers coach Bo Pelini he planned to attend NU.

With Friday's announcement, however, Young told the site that his decision — this time — is final.

"Kansas starts classes soon and they have orientation on the 14th," said Young, who graduated from high school a semester early and will enroll at Kansas for the coming semester. "I will be there on the 13th and ready for it. I know winter conditioning starts on the 26th and I'm ready to get going. KU is the right school for me. There is no more changing my mind and I'm glad it is over."

His loss. The Huskers will move on. Maybe he wanted to play for Nebraska, but also wanted to play closer to home. Good luck to him.
