Bobcat FB recruit: Antoine Young

In another athlete/ prospect that that newly hired running back coach Milo Austin has added to the Montana State recruiting base the Bobcat coaching staff has recently offered Antoine Young from Suitland high school in District Heights Maryland. Young is a 5′-11″, 200 pound inside line backer prospect. It appears coach Austin is very connected with Suitland high school as the Bobcats also recently offered team mate Levern Jacobs.

Young was a All-Prince George County 4A League Football Team Second Team Defense as a inside linebacker, this past season and is said to have averaged 13 tackles (solo and assisted) a game for Suitland.

Wayne Yarborough of MDhigh.com (part of the rivals.com network) recently rated Young as the sixth best line backer prospect at the MDHigh Elite showcase cream of the crop combine. Here was his evaluation of Young

Young is an aggressive and lethal linebacker who had an outstanding junior season for MPSSAA 4-A perennial power Suitland, where he was a tackling machine. He performed well at the Elite Showcase, showing off his coverage skills and great athletic reflexes. Young also has excellent speed for a prospect his size with his 4.6 40. Expect for the recruiting to pick up for Young during the May evaluation period.

Dave Lomonico also of MDHigh also recently did a story about Young’s first offer, from Montana State, and I pulled the following quote from Young. (It should be noted that Scout.com also did an article about Young’s Montana State offer also but I liked this article better.

“I called the coach [Milo Austin] and left a message, so that gave me a little anxiety,” Young said. “But he called me back and we were talking a little bit about my plans and Montana State.

“Then he told me he definitely wanted to offer me and my teammate, Levern Jacobs,” Young continued. “It was a jaw-dropper. I had to step away and recuperate a little bit just to talk after he said that.”

“Coach Austin is from this area and I like that a lot,” Young said. “I’m hoping he can make Montana State feel like home if I end up going there . And the fact they’re recruiting Levern, too, helps, especially if he goes there.”

Montana State was the first and I believe the only school so far to offer Young but Arizona, Boston College, Delaware, Illinois, James Madison, Maryland, North Carolina State, and Penn State are also involved. Young is also an outstanding student so that could drive quite a few more schools to take an interest in him as we get into the summer.

I wonder if Coach Austin east coast connections and the recruitment of these Maryland prospects signal another possible recruiting ground that the Bobcat coaching staff could exploit in the coming years or not. Maryland is an awful long way away and I wonder if the coaching staff could afford to seriously recruit this area of the country given their D1 FCS budget. It will be interesting to see.
