3-star DL Justin Young commits to Georgia Bulldogs


The Georgia Bulldogs added their sixth commitment in the class of 2015 on Saturday when 3-star defensive lineman Justin Young gave his pledge to the Bulldogs.

Young attended the Bulldogs’ spring practice and couldn’t help but pull the trigger.

“I committed to Coach Mark Richt today,” Young told Kipp Adams of 24/7 Sports. “I talked to my family and Georgia just felt like home.

The 6’3.5, 255-pound Young is from Loganville, Georgia and attends Grayson High School.

“There ain’t nothing like playing for the home state,” Young said. “Coach Richt got really excited and gave me a big bear hug. It feels good to be a Bulldog and I feel really blessed, because not too many get this opportunity, or any school.”

Young was recruited by the Bulldogs as a defensive end, but projects as a defensive tackle. He is ranked as the 48th best defensive tackle prospect, the 75th best overall best prospect in the state of Georgia and the 794th best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Young chose the Bulldogs over offers from the Clemson Tigers and Marshall Thundering Herd, among others.
