Louisville Christian Academy offensive lineman John Young says his sister, Sarah, is “really important” in his life. That’s why she’s been a vital part of his recruiting process and has gone on a couple of official visits with him.
“I am seriously listening to her. She has always been someone I can talk to about stuff I might not be comfortable talking to my parents about,” the offensive lineman said about his 21-year-old sister who is a nursing student at the Unviersity of Louisville.
“She’s a huge part of this process. She’s not a big sports person but she knows football. Having her around is such a great asset for me. I love having her around. She is leaving me alone and not pushing any one school. She’s just there to help.”
Most recruiting analysts consider Young a lock for Kentucky. But he says new Louisville coach Scott Satterfield has impressed him.
“I have hit it off with the new coaching staff. I was not a huge fan of the old one (Bobby Petrino),” Young said. “They have talked to me a lot and I think they can turn the program around.”
He says he is “comfortable” around Kentucky coach Mark Stoops and his staff — and notes again that he’s always been a Kentucky fan.
“They have a good track record of in-state players getting on the field, too,” Young said.
Young won’t have a flashy ceremony to announce his college choice on Monday night.
“I am just going to do it on social media. I am not a real showy guy, so that will be enough for me,” Young said.
