Former Hawkeye football recruit Trevon Young back on Iowa’s radar

[ 0 ] December 4, 2013 |

Trevon Young has launched a comeback that could make him an Iowa football recruit again.

Young is nearing the end of his freshman season at Iowa Western Community College and his performance as a pass rushing defensive end has caught the attention of several FBS schools.

Iowa Western tweeted on Wednesday that Arkansas was the latest FBS program to offer the 6-foot-4, 235-pound Young a scholarship. An offer from Iowa also came on Wednesday, according to several Internet reports. Iowa Western also posted on Twitter that Iowa defensive line coach Reese Morgan and Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema were at the school on Wednesday to meet with Young.

The Des Moines Lincoln graduate briefly was committed to Western Michigan in November, but has since decided to explore other options. Young visited Indiana last weekend and will visit Mississippi and Louisville next week. Mississippi offered Young a scholarship Thursday morning, according to the Iowa Western twitter account.

Young was committed to Iowa in high school, but his scholarship was lifted after he had two legal run-ins in Des Moines. He was arrested in July 2012 for third-degree burglary and interference with officials acts. His second arrest for criminal trespassing came in December 2012.

Young has recorded 41 tackles this season, including 11 ½ sacks. He earned All-Midwest Conference accolades for a 10-1 team. Iowa Western will play in the Graphic Edge Bowl Saturday at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.

Young reportedly is on course to graduate later this month and could transfer to a four-year school for the spring semester. He will have three seasons of eligibility.
