It's the Civil War all over again for Klein, Texas, standout three-star safety Ashton Youboty. It's going to be either the North or the South for him.
And at this point it's a stalemate, other than a slight lean toward Penn State.
"It's the North against the South," Youboty, who is 6-foot-1 and 186 pounds, said. "I have a top three in the North and a top three in the South.
"In the North, I really like Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan. I'm going to visit Penn State for the Nebraska game (Sept. 13 weekend) and I'm going to check out Ohio State, too, for sure.
"In the South, it's LSU, Oklahoma and Texas. All but Texas and Michigan have offered me scholarships."
Youboty said he has a dilemma brewing. You see he and his family are Penn State fans, but his parents want him to stay in the South and play closer to home.
"If they had a choice, I'd stay closer to home," he said. "I'm really torn. I want to do what's best for me and for my family."
Youboty said right now, he’d begin to set other visits up around his football schedule. His Ohio State visit is probably going to be during the season for a big game and the other visits will all fall in line, too.
"We start practices on the 12th," he said. "I'm not looking forward to two-a-days, but I am ready to get back on the field."
Youboty is an all-district cornerback and return man that averaged more than 10 yards on 21 punt returns with one score and had three interceptions as a junior. He was born in Monrovia, Liberia, and spent his middle school years in Philadelphia before moving to the suburbs of Houston.
He is also ranked as the No. 36 player in the state of Texas by Rivals.com.
