Woodson QB changing his mind?

H.D. Woodson senior quarterback Ricardo Young, who orally committed to Virginia Tech last spring, seems to be wavering on his choice. According to three sources with knowledge of the situation, Young took a visit to New Mexico the weekend of Dec. 5-6 and is giving serious consideration to changing him mind and signing with the Lobos

The sources said Young was very impressed by the recruiting pitch from Lobos Coach Mike Locksley, who has steered several D.C. players to New Mexico, as well as to his previous stops while an assistant at Illinois, Florida and Maryland.

"It was all about getting him to visit," one source said. "Once [Locksley] gets you out there, you're hooked."

Young plans to graduate this month and enroll in college next month for the purpose of competing in spring practice. Young plans to follow through on this schedule whether he signs with Virginia Tech or New Mexico, the sources said.

Meantime, New Mexico locked up three other D.C. commitments in the past few days. Coolidge senior wide receivers Martize Barr and Josh Ford plan to sign with the Lobos, along with Friendship Collegiate offensive lineman Earl Johnson.

Locksley signed a D.C. quarterback last year, but Coolidge's Emmanuel Yeager, who enrolled early, left school last May and has since transferred to Bowie State.
