Palomar's Young will be a Cyclone
Young enjoyed his visit the campus and said he had felt like committing before he even made the trip out, but he wanted to see things up close before he made his decision.
"When I got there I got to meet with the coaches and talk to the players a lot," Young said. "They're getting ready for their bowl game, so they were practicing and stuff and I got to see what that was like and I feel like I could have a great chance to come in and compete for a starting spot once I get here next month.
"The coaches were really selling me on the fact that there is playing time available for the best guy out there. I love to compete so it's just perfect."
When Young spoke with his mother, she also gave her approval, albeit from 1,500 miles away.
"I talked to her about it a lot," Young said. "I told her I wanted to commit, but I'm a city guy so I wasn't really sure, but she said I should go out and experience a different lifestyle for a little while and that she'd love for me to be (at Iowa State)."
Young finished the season with six interceptions while posting 48 tackles and an amazing 17 passes defensed.
He chose the Cyclones over offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Utah State, Middle Tennessee and Tulsa.
Young plans to sign his letter of intent on Wednesday, December 16th -- the first day mid-year players can sign -- and will enroll at Iowa State in January with three years to play two when he arrives.
