Young close to a commitment

Lansing (Mich.) Sexton defensive end D.J. Young took his first official visit over the weekend. It may be his last.
"I visited Cincinnati," Young said. "It had everything I needed.
"It had everything in education and football. I'm thinking about committing more and more everyday."
The official visit with the Bearcats started off on the right foot for Young and just kept getting better.
"The food set the tone right away," he said. "It was great. The facilities are nice. There doing construction in the football offices. They're going to have a new team meeting room.
"Cincinnati is pretty much my leader."
When asked who else is still in the picture, Young said, "UCF and Purdue. I'm going to schedule a visit to Central Florida this weekend or the next weekend.
"Boston College is showing some interest. I'll get back with them. And I'm still hearing a little from Michigan."
However the 6-foot-5 and 265 pound Young did not rule out ending the recruiting process before he takes another trip.
Young made 54 tackles including seven sacks during his senior season. He played in only seven games as he missed four after fracturing the fibula in his left leg. Young is the No. 13 prospect in the state of Michigan in the Rivals.com player rankings.
