Union, S.C. offensive lineman Eric Young has announced his decision.
Young, a 6-foot-4, 260-pounder ranked as the No. 3 player in the state of South Carolina, chose the Tennessee Volunteers at a press conference at school today.
"It was in my heart," said Young, whose commitment was broadcast by fancast.com. "I told the coaches this morning that I was coming. It was the hardest decision of my life, but I just went with my heart."
Young signed his paperwork at the press conference and was faxing it as this was written. He had committed to Tennessee a few weeks back, but wavered on that commitment a few times. He chose the Vols over Clemson, South Carolina and North Carolina.
