He had the offer, he thought things over, and he knew he was ready to end the process before he arrived in Athens Saturday.
"I planned it out and I knew I would be committing today," said Young. "I have been thinking about it since Georgia offered and after weighing things out, looking at the other offers, I knew Georgia was the place for me."
Young grew up cheering for the Dawgs. Now he is one and he is happy to call Athens his future home.
"Georgia feels like home to me right now. I have been a Georgia fan since I was born and it just feels right. It is close to home, the atmosphere is great, and everything just feels like home. I really feel great right now."
The 6-foot-4, 260 pound defensive lineman out of Loganville, Ga. gave the news to his recruiting coach [Bryan McClendon] and his future defensive line coach [Tracy Rocker], but the UGA head coach got the news first.
"Coach Richt was very excited when I committed," said Young. "When I told him I wanted to be a Bulldog, he gave me a big bear hug. He was very excited and he cannot wait for me to get up to Athens."
Now Young will be able to turn all his focus to Grayson High School and put recruiting behind him.
He is happy about that.
"It feels great to be a Bulldog. A lot of stress is off my back and I can start focusing on my team at Grayson and my senior year. It is a great day for me."
Young has played both sides of the ball in high school, but he will be on the defensive side in Athens. He will play end and he is excited about learning from Coach Rocker.
"Coach Rocker is one of the best defensive line coaches in the country," said Young. "He won the Outland award at Auburn and I now I have the opportunity to be coached by one of the best.
"I cannot wait to learn from him, play for him, and just get back to Georgia. I know I will get a lot better."
Young is commit No. 6 for the Bulldogs.
