Despite claiming recent new offers, H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.) quarterback Ricardo Young is poised to end his recruitment. The 6-1, 170-pound rising senior signal caller has chosen his college destination and plans to make that choice public at Thursday’s Big-Time Football Showcase held at Rutgers University.

“I just picked up offers from South Florida, Central Florida, Washington, Cincinnati and Clemson, but I told them all I’m about to make a decision,” Young said. “I’m actually going to decide on Thursday. I’m not sure of the time, but I know the camp starts at 3. I think it’ll be televised.”

Young, who recently made unofficial visits to Virginia Tech (Spring Game) and West Virginia, says his decision came down to the Hokies and Mountaineers as well as Connecticut, Maryland and Syracuse. He has already informed one staff of his decision.

“I’ve told the coaching staff of the school I’m committing to,” said Young.

Of his decision, Young said, “I’m excited. I feel I’ve found the right fit. This school is the right situation for me, everything from the school to the depth chart.”

One of the top 2010 class quarterback prospects in the Maryland/Washington D.C./Virginia region, Young threw for 3,089 yards and 31 touchdowns with only five interceptions last season as a junior. He rushed for 780 yards and 11 scores as well, leading H.D. Woodson to a 7-4 record and a Turkey Bowl victory over rival Dunbar.

Stay tuned to TSL on Thursday, as we’ll have the latest on Young’s college choice.
