This time around, Young is feeling a lot more comfortable and relaxed heading into the game against Alabama. "The jitters go away when you first get in for your first time," Young said. "You don't want to mess up, you don't want to look like a fool. But you know, after two games Florida and South Carolina and coming back into Bama now, I feel very comfortable and very relaxed going into it. But still with enough urgency to get my job done, but I feel comfortable in my position." There is a noticeable difference between the defensive line of Alabama and the defensive lines he faced the past two weeks in New Mexico State and South Carolina. Young is ready for the challenge. "As my coaches always said and what my family and everything has always said is, you know, I respect everyone but I don't fear anybody. Nobody but the Lord," Young said. Alabama was in Young's final three schools with Kentucky and Auburn. Thankfully the four-star offensive tackle decided to stay home. Young says he had a good relationship with the coaching staff at Alabama throughout the recruiting process "I had a really good relationship Coach Cristobal (Alabama's offensive line coach) and Coach Saban," Young said. "I've talked to them multiple times on the phone throughout the recruiting process. Went down there for games and saw them and everything. We had a pretty good relationship." Young had a great game against South Carolina and we will only see him get better throughout the season.
