Scotty Young is STAYING with Tech

Just got finished talking to Ryan quarterback Scotty Young via the wonders of Facebook chat, and the record-setting senior has decided to stick with his original oral commitment with Texas Tech after the well publicized firing of iconic head coach Mike Leach at the end of December.

The new hire, Tommy Tuberville, will be bringing with him a bit more balanced offense under OC Neal Brown than Leach’s “Air Raid” offense, but Young was sold after a visit from Tuberville, Brown and former Tech QB/graduate assistant Sonny Cumbie.

“Went great. Definitely Tech now,” were Young’s words about the visit.

He said he was looking forward to the renovations Brown would bring and was glad to have Cumbie retained from Leach’s staff.

You know that’s a relief for Scotty, who had his college plans instantly turned upside down when Tech fired Leach on Dec. 30. He had committed to Tech in March.
