    Re: WR K.J. Young to vists

    We apparently have a scholarship available. According to Rivals, we not only have arranged an official visit (for K J Young); but, we have also extended an offer.

    A couple of tidbits.... The reason Young cooled on the Boise State offer is because BSU was recruiting Young as a CB. Oklahoma said that they will "let the position be sorted out when camp starts next Fall" (Oklahoma is listing Young as a CB prospect). Young has stated that he wants to go where he can be a WR.

    Young may not be the tallest, or fastest WR out there; but, he has probably the best set of hands that I have watched on a high school receiver. If the ball comes his direction, he usually catches it (and that is worth an offer).

    Re: WR K.J. Young to vists

    (Wild speculation on my part) It would not surprise me if the staff has decided that Brisly Estime is not going to academically qualify. Young does not have Estime's speed; but he has the "sure hands" that you would want in a punt returner. Young is likely a better receiver than Estime (but doesn't have Estime's top end speed).

    Makes perfect sense. Especially when you consider that he's visiting some small school and an SEC school now. Would love to have him, but I don't think he'll make it to Ames.

    Apparently you never watched my High School highlight video!

    I find it completely amazing that in this day/age of over-the-top recruiting analysis, a guy with offers from the schools that Young does has not even been evaluated by what most consider the top recruiting service.

    Go get 'em CPR - We could definitely use an upgrade at WR!

    Re: WR K.J. Young to vists

    Let's hope Laquon Treadwell commits to OU this week. I would rather have Estime myself, but Young would be a solid pickup this late.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: WR K.J. Young to vists

    Just want to say that we (OU) aren't recruiting him as a DB. The initial contact came from his HS coach to our Linebackers coach (Kish, coached at Arizona recruited Cali) but Young is being recruited as a WR by us
