Young’s commitment comes just a few hours after Georgia linebacker Gerry Vaughn announced his pledge to Matt Campbell‘s program. It is also right on the heels of Mississippi wide receiver C.J. Bolar announcing is decommitment from the class.
Iowa State is now back at 11 commitments in the program’s 2018 class. Young is the Cyclones’ highest rated commit and moves the class back inside the top-40 nationally.
