Avery Young, College Football Recruiting 2012: Miami Makes Late Push

Offensive tackle Avery Young of Palm Beach Gardens High School has narrowed his destination school down to four final options: the Auburn Tigers, the Miami Hurricanes, the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators.

Young is a consensus four-star prospect, who Rivals ranks as the ninth-best offensive tackle in the class of 2012.

Young's high school coach told Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post that he has a "pretty good idea" of where Young will end up.

Porter also mentioned on Twitter that despite the fact that Young's school is located Miami, his head coach has never met Canes coach Al Golden. As for Young himself, he met with Golden and members of the Miami staff personally Wednesday as part of a final push to keep the hometown star there. Miami was apparently determined to be the last program to talk to the 6-foot-6, 290-pound offensive tackle.
