Union, S.C. offensive lineman Eric Young is back from the Shrine Bowl and his focus is now on recruiting.
"It was a tough game, we were kind of outmatched up front," said the 6-foot-4, 260-pounder of his South Carolina team's 28-0 loss. "We couldn't get anything going on offense."
Young is now ready to begin his official visit schedule.
"I go to Clemson on Jan. 10, South Carolina on Jan. 17 and Tennessee on Jan. 24," he said. "I also have Maryland set for Jan. 31 but I might not need that."
So who leads?
"South Carolina is still on top," he said. "There were some Clemson guys at the Shrine Bowl and I hit it off with some of them and Clemson is right up there as well, but USC is still closest to home and I like the coaches. My visits will determine everything though."
