Defensive end Trevon Young has signed with the University of Louisville football program, the school announced on Wednesday afternoon.
Young is the first signee for the 2014 recruiting class and will enroll at UofL in January. He will have three years of eligibility remaining for the Cardinals.
A 6-foot-4, 230-pound defensive end, Young comes to Louisville after one season at Iowa Western, where was a first team All-Midwestern Football Conference selection. Young was instrumental on a Reivers defense that was ranked fifth in the nation in total defense and four the in scoring defense.
Iowa Western, ranked No. 3 in the national junior college rankings, finished the season at 11-1 with a 6-0 win over Butler in the Graphic Edge Bowl.
“Trevon Young is a very athletic defensive end who matches our pressure style of defense,” recruiting coordinator Brian Jean-Mary said. “He can play in space as a stand up outside linebacker and rush the passer as a down lineman. We are excited to have him in our program as we believe he will be a great addition to our already talented defensive line.”
Young was recently named a National Junior College Coaches Association second-team All-American.
