Three-star wide receiver/defensive backs Chancellor Young (6-2, 210, 4.3) from Seattle (Wash.) O’Dea returned from his trip this weekend to UCLA though he had a great time Yong has remained uncommitted. The Bruins are however one of the final three schools.
Young was scheduled to visit Notre Dame this coming weekend but the trip has been canceled because the Fighting Irish have run out of scholarships.
This bodes well for UCLA, Oregon and Duke. The last three schools standing for his services.
“The visit to UCLA went well,” Young said. “The weather was cooperative and the overall environment was nice,” Young said. “The players and the coaches were welcoming.”
“I could see myself working with them in the future,” Young said. “I’m going to sit and talk it over with my parents. I want to make sure that I have gone over everything and not leaving anything out.”
The other two schools in the hunt are Duke and Oregon.
“Duke is a very good school,” Young said. “But the football team hasn’t had the same success that their basketball program, but the area is nice and they are building the football program to be on par with the basketball program.”
“Oregon is a great place,” Young said. “The facilities are second to none. Oregon is on the cutting edge with their facilities.”
“I like all three schools and each of them have their different niche that makes them standout,” Young said. “I should have an answer by the end of this week or early next week.”
In a subtle twist, Young is the son of former USC and NFL standout tight end Charle Young. Does it concern one of the greatest Trojans of all that his son might don the uniform of his college archrival UCLA?
“No, my dad just wants me to be happy wherever I go,” Young said. “He has been very supportive.”
Young was selected all-state as a strong safety, all-area as a wide receiver and all-league at both positions.
On offense, Young caught 25 passes for approximately 500 yards and five touchdowns. As a safety, Young racked up 91 tackles, one pick and one sack.
Young projects as a wide receiver for UCLA and Duke, while Oregon likes him as a defensive back.
