Notes:
Earned Second-Team All-ACC recognition as a senior when he posted 55 tackles and was third in the conference in tackles for loss with 15 and sacks with eight...Young was expected to have a big year in 2008 but it wasn't until later in the campaign that he finally began to show his value, finishing with a career-best 58 tackles and six sacks as he was named honorable mention All-ACC...Finished career with NC State as the program's second-leading tackler behind the line of scrimmage with 45.5 TFLs, yet some tend to think that his best years might already be behind him.
