John Young from Loyola commits to UCLA.

John Young, the powerful TE from Loyola HS announced his commitment tonight to our Bruins.  I gotta admit, at first I was a little confused on this signing.  While he has been rumored to be a silent commit for a while now, I was wondering if we really needed him.  I figured we were pretty much loaded at the position, considering we signed Pressley last year, and will have Fauria in game action next year.  Add Harkey and Chandler to that, and we have a great unit for next year.  Then after I thought about it, it makes perfect sense.  Young, who is 6'4 and about 245 is a monster.  He projects to being a very good blocking TE, but can also catch the ball.  I think he is sure to redshirt, at which time our TE's will be in the later part of their careers when he is a redshirt freshman and ready to learn from them.  He'll step in for his last three years ready to be a monster.  I could also see him maybe putting on more weight on his frame, which can surely handle it, and maybe becoming an offensive lineman if need be.  I have no idea, and I don't really care.


What I do know is that CRN is making great progress at signing talented and skilled football players.  It is up to him and his staff to plug them in where they belong, and I know that they surely know more than I do and will put them where they think is best for the program.  Like I have faith in CBH, I will throw my complete trust in CRN and Co. and believe in them.  It is only year #2 in the process, and I am incredibly happy with the way things are beginning to turn around.  The first part of the process is getting better players, they are doing that.  The next part is beginning to happen........playing better football.

Getting guys like Young, from such a great program as Loyola, speaks for itself.  Welcome to the Bruin family Mr. Young!!
