BOOM! BOOM! For “Linebacker U”! UCLA’s defense is just getting better and tougher and stronger and faster… basically, they are going to be good for a long while. Four-star middle linebacker Kenny Young has committed to the Bruins and gave more fire power to one of the toughest position groups in the Pac-12.
At 6’2”, 225 lbs., Young comes from John Curtis Christian High School in River Ridge, Louisiana and is the #7 ranked player a his position. Scout.com has touted him as strong, aggressive individual who can put a wallop behind his hit. Wow, that sounds like the proto-Bruin linebacker.
Young is the third linebacker to commit to the Bruins for 2014. Four-star middle linebacker Zach Whitley and three-star outside linebacker Dwight Williams will be joining him in Westwood as the Bruins will have a very deep LB group next year. They join the likes of Eric Kendricks and Myles Jack for a very dangerous linebacking crew.
Seriously though, can you imagine how good the UCLA linebackers will be for the next few years. They were clearly were the best defensive group in the Pac-12 and with this recruit will only keep the there for a few more years.
