West Virginia Lands Atlanta, Georgia Defender

Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers have just gained a commitment from Zion Young, a talented defensive lineman from Atlanta, Georgia.

Young, 6’5 240 pounds, visited Morgantown over the weekend on an official visit and he was reportedly extremely impressed with the coaching staff and facilities.

Young held offers from Alabama State, Buffalo, Eastern Kentucky, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky.

Young is a long, athletic edge rusher and will give Coach Jordan Lesley a very raw, explosive athlete to work with for several years.  He has the physical tools to be a very special player for the Mountaineers in the future!
