08/10/13 - TOP GEORGIA TECH PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 2. CB Louis Young (6-0, 201, 4.43)...After a sophomore season that put him on the NFL radar, Young took a step back in 2012 as a junior, struggling with off-field issues, injuries and maddening inconsistencies. Nonetheless, he has intriguing raw talent and is determined to play his best football as a senior in order to show scouts he has next level ability.
Young has a good-sized frame for the position and doesn't shy away from contact, but he needs to clean up his tackling technique, too often just throwing his shoulder and getting lazy. He has a nose for the ball and goes after it in the air, matching up well with receivers to break up the play at the catch point. Young needs to stay healthy and stay level-headed from kickoff to the final score and if he can do that, he should be able to establish himself as one of the better cornerbacks in the conference and possible draft pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
08/05/12 - A Georgia Tech football player faces suspension for selling tickets to the Tech-Georgia game last November. School officials would not identify the player or offer comment. Evidence from a redacted self-violation report from Tech to the NCAA, obtained through an open records request, points to cornerback Louis Young. “We’ve got some guys that will be sitting out the first game,” coach Paul Johnson said. “We’ll let you know who they are about a week from the game.” Asked specifically if Young would play against Virginia Tech in the season opener, Johnson replied, “I’m not going to tell Virginia Tech who we’re not going to have.” Tech’s report to the NCAA states that the student-athlete “has satisfied one contest toward his respective reinstatement condition” by being withheld “from the Georgia Tech [redacted]” and that he “did not travel to [redacted] associated with the team’s participation.” The Sun Bowl is the only game that Tech has played since the Georgia game. Young did not make the trip and was the only player suspended for the game, not counting a player sent home for an on-site violation of team rules. Asked about the matter Saturday following the team’s fan day event, Young said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’ve got to talk to Coach Johnson.” When his suspension was made public Dec. 19, Young sent out a message on Twitter stating that “I’m young and I made a bad decision and I will grow from this situation. I’m humbled but I’m not defeated by it.” - Ken Sugiura, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
06/16/12 - Top-five Georgia Tech prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. CB Louis Young (6-1, 200)...Although he has only one career interception, Young is one of the bright young stars on the Georgia Tech defense. He looks the part with the size and length to match up with bigger receivers, but also the quickness to hold up in space, often moving inside in nickel situations. Out of high school in the D.C. area, Young was recruited by Maryland to play basketball, but was an even better football recruit and decided to go South to Atlanta. He was a back-up freshman in 2010 before earning the starting nod at cornerback last season, starting the first 12 games as a sophomore. Young was suspended for the bowl game due to a violation of team rules, but finished the season with 52 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, five pass break-ups and one interception. He plays with a lot of energy on the field and loves to get physical, lowering his shoulder and delivering a blow to the ballcarrier. Young has the foot quickness to mirror and the speed in reverse to stay in receivers' hip pocket. He is still developing his awareness and feel for the position, but is considered one of the hardest workers off the field, in both the weight and film room, thriving to emulate the game of his favorite player, Charles Woodson. Young has the skill-set to develop into an early round cornerback. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
