    Video: Anthony Young is ready to go

    Here's an interview that I did with Anthony Young yesterday. He's a great kid. Glad to meet him. Very honest about his experiences in Ames so far.

    Fast talker. Seems like a hyper little guy. I loved the comment "I just wanna play ball."

    I like Anthony's attitude. Competition is good.

    Firmest handshake I have ever experienced in my life. For a minute, I thought that he broke a bone in my right hand.

    Everyone says he has a pretty firm grip except footballs. They say it is normally a pretty loosy goosy grip.

    Re: Video: Anthony Young is ready to go

    Not that how a player interviews really means anything but Anthony reminds me of some of our best corners. He has that very personable confident style like LJ and Ellis. Corners need to be extremely confident in themselves and he seems to have that without coming across as cocky. I think a huge key to our defense is having either Anthony or Reeves come in and take the corner opposite LJ. That would allow Benton to really focus on the hybrid lb/db spot which he plays very well. That would also help alleviate some of the concerns at lb if Wally can go with the nickel look on a high percentage of snaps.

    If he plays as fast as he talks, he'll be a good one.

    Listening to that was fun. I love how it sounded for a bit like he might have been saying, "I watched these guys, and I knew I could be better," but naturally worked his way to "We can all push each other. We're all good enough to push each other," that sort of thing.

    I like his mix of self-confidence and team outlook. He seems like a good fit for us

    Maybe he didn't like your questions and that was his way of letting you know
