One of the fastest rising prospects in Michigan this season has been Lansing Sexton three-star strongside defensive end D.J. Young.
This is true, even though the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder missed four games in his senior season with an ankle injury.
But in mid-November he now has six scholarship offers, two visits set up and a major power checking in him regularly.
"I've got two visits set up," Young said. "I'm going to Cincinnati on December 9, and I've set up Indiana for January 13. I'm still talking to Purdue, I think I'm going to go there the first weekend of December, but I don't have that set up officially yet."
Young said he's also starting to hear more regularly from Michigan assistant Terry Malone. He doesn't know whether or not the Wolverines are going to offer him a scholarship, but he's excited about the possibilities.
"Coach Malone is a pretty cool guy," Young said. "He just tells me they're showing major interest in me."
With offers on the table from Cincinnati, Indiana, Ball State, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan, Young will have some good options to look at.
"I'm probably going to end up out of state if none of the big in-state schools offer me," he said. "I've had some good talks with the guys at Cincinnati (Dan Enos)."
Young is now moving forward toward basketball season. He's also working hard in conditioning and preparing to get ready for next year in football already.
