Moorestown, N.J. running back Albert Young decided to give himself an early Christmas present and get the recruiting process over with.
"I committed to Wisconsin," said the 5-foot-10, 205-pounder. "I really liked it out there and they have a good Jersey connection. They also like to run the ball quite a bit. I'm hoping to continue the tradition started by Ron Dayne and follow Anthony Davis as the next Jersey tailback."
Young, who ran for more than 2,200 yards and 32 scores, had also visited Rutgers and had interest in Iowa, Boston College and Miami. The Eagles and 'Canes hadn't offered yet.
"I didn't want to mess up my chance with Wisconsin by waiting on others to offer me," he said. "I knew I'd probably end up at Wisconsin anyhow, so why wait?"
