The North Carolina State Wolfpack extended several offers yesterday, and one of them was to three-star 2014 Gainesville, Florida wide receiver Kenric Young. The Gainesville High star has no reported leans right now, but Young has several major offers with N.C. State being one of the latest ones. Gerry Hamilton of 247Sports predicts the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as the team to land Young, and he has interest from Georgia Tech and several other ACC programs like N.C. State.
Young has offers from Appalachian State, the Iowa State Cyclones, the South Florida Bulls, UMass, Florida Atlantic, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, N.C. State, Middle Tennessee State, Ohio, Western Kentucky, the Utah Utes, Troy, the Purdue Boilermakers, the UCF Knights, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers. UNC, the Wisconsin Badgers (Chris Beatty is recruiting Young to Madison), Rutgers, Michigan State, South Carolina, and Duke are major programs with interest in Young.
The 6’2″, 180 pound three-star wide receiver is ranked by the 247Composite as the 159th-best recruit in the state of Florida, and the 247Composite also views Kenric Young as the 161st-best wide receiver in the 2014 class as well.
It will be interesting to see if in-city school the Florida Gators show more interest in Young, as he visited the school on an unofficial trip last month but doesn’t seem to have significant interest from the Gators. Georgia Tech and Nebraska look like two schools in a great position to land Young early on, and Lamar Owens is the one trying to recruit Kenric Young to Georgia Tech.
