Four-star cornerback Erick Young has released his list of his final 6 schools, and the Big 12 has two representatives.
The defensive back from Richmond (Texas) Fort Bend Bush announced his top schools Monday, which include Oklahoma and TCU. Alabama, Texas A&M, USC and Ohio State also made the cut.

Young is the No. 100 overall prospect in the country for 2019 and the No. 13-ranked player in Texas in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Texas A&M is considered the favorite to land Young. However, it’s worth noting that his Fort Bend Bush teammate, safety Jamal Morris, committed to Oklahoma over the weekend. If Young commits to the Sooners, the teammates could continue to share the same defensive backfield in college.
TCU has two 3-star cornerbacks committed for 2019 in Donavann Collins (Cedar Hill, Texas) and 3-star Williams Jones (Mansfield Summit/Arlington, Texas), but Young would be the highest-ranked prospect in the Horned Frogs’ class if he picked them. Gary Patterson is always looking for athletic, fast corners to play coverage in his innovative 4-2-5 defense.
Oklahoma has no cornerbacks currently committed for 2019. Morris is their only defensive back commit so far. The Sooners are coming off a great recruiting weekend, grabbing four commits in two days and landing graduate transfer Jay Hayes from Notre Dame.
The Frogs currently have the No. 15 overall class nationally and the No. 3 class in the Big 12. The Sooners boast the No. 3 class in the country and the No. 1 class in the conference.
