Change of plans for OT?



When he finished his last scheduled official visit to Georgia a couple of weeks ago, Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) offensive tackle Avery Young just knew he had the worst part out of the way with recruiting.

He could now sit back and focus on making the right decision, and he even contemplated moving his announcement date from National Signing Day on February 1 to January 5 for the Under Armour All American game.

Due to coaching changes at three of his top four schools, Young has decided to wait.

"I'm just going to wait until Signing Day," he said. "There are so many changes going on with coaches and all that I just need to see things play out."

It isn't just the current coaching changes that have the blue chip lineman thinking, it's the possibility of more changes that also weigh heavily on his mind.

"See, I hadn't thought of it before, but if an offensive coordinator leaves, my position coach could also change too," said Young. "That is just a lot to deal with."

Fresh off his visit to Georgia, Young told UGASports.com that his top two schools were Auburn and Georgia, and that those two teams were the schools he knew, without a doubt, would be in it until the end.

Despite the changes that have occurred at some of his top schools, nothing has changed among Young's leaders.

"Georgia and Auburn are still on top," he said. "I know I'm going to consider those schools in the end, but I'm not sure about the rest."

"When signing day gets her, I'll know where I want to go and I'll be ready to sign."
