According to South Charlotte Weekly writer Aaron Garcia and just confirmed by his HS coach Bruce Hardin, Providence Day School (Charlotte, NC) WR Mark Young has signed a letter of intent and will join the Georgia State football 2011 signing class.
Young is a 6’5, 200lbs X WR with good hands and very good speed. According to Hardin, he’s been clocked as fast as 4.5 in the 40 yard dash. Young also displays good body control and has very good balance for someone his size.
He looks to have the frame to hold another 10-15lbs without losing speed or flexibility. He is a little raw in his route running and will benefit greatly from extended work with WR coach George Pugh. Young finished his Senior season with 31 catches for 435 yards and 6 TDs.
Providence Day went 8-3 this past season in NCISAA Independent school action and Young had also considered Appalachian State before deciding on the Panthers. He and his family chose Georgia State because of Coach Bill Curry and his staff. He finished his Sr. season with 31 catches for 435 yards and 6 TDs.
