PBR: Why did you choose the school you did?
YOUNG: I chose Nebraska-Omaha because of the tremendous investment into athletics by the athletic director and president of the school, as well as the fact that the coaches really buy into the program and produce a fun atmosphere to compete in. My family and I were also very impressed with the campus and academic programs.

PBR: What other schools were you considering?
YOUNG: In the few weeks before my decision, it was down to UNO and Valparaiso.

PBR: Where did the coaching staff first see you? How did your relationship develop with him?
YOUNG: Coach Kinney first saw me pitch at Dynamic Velocity in Omaha, although Coach Porter talked a lot with David Conrad on the phone, and that was an important part in building a relationship with the coaches. I then talked more and more with Coach Porter and Coach Kinney and got over for a visit as soon as I could.

PBR: Do you feel relieved now that the process is over and you can just focus on baseball and not deal with everything that goes into picking a school?
YOUNG: It is definitely relieving to be able to just focus on playing baseball and getting stronger over the winter knowing that I have found the right school for me.

PBR: Was there one deciding factor that put your choice over the top?
YOUNG: If I had to pick one factor that had the biggest impact on my decision, it would be the investment of time and money into the baseball program looking towards the future.

PBR: Who has helped you the most to get to where you are today?
YOUNG: The Iowa Sticks organization as well as David Conrad have helped me a ton in the past 4-5 years. I am very thankful to have been surrounded by people who are always advocating on my behalf and looking out for my best interests.

PBR: What were your expectations about the recruiting process? Was it easy/difficult?
YOUNG: With my unique situation, I was definitely more focused on the people in the program this time around. It was definitely interesting to talk to many coaches and explore all the opportunities I could have, but in the end the right choice for me became apparent.

PBR: What plans does the coaching staff have in store for you in your freshman season?
YOUNG: Coming into my freshman year, I believe I will have opportunities to contribute right away on the mound and help the team win.

PBR: What is your most memorable baseball moment to date?
YOUNG: My most memorable baseball moment would probably be throwing a no-hitter in my first varsity start my eighth grade year.

PBR: Who is the best player that you have competed against?
YOUNG: The best player I have played against to date is Carter Baumler, although he has been on my team for the past few years.
