Wayne senior Craig Young took to Twitter on Friday evening to announce his college decision.

“I would like to thank all the college coaches that took the time to recruit me,” Young tweeted. “It has been a long process. Talking to my family, coaches and friends they are the ones that help me with the decision I’m making. Every since I was young I prayed and dreamed about this day coming. With all that being said I have committed to the Ohio State University!”

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound Young announced his decision days after visited Ohio State for a camp. During that visit, Young was seen getting some personal time with Buckeyes coaches, including head coach Urban Meyer.

A standout three-star athlete, Young has been exceptional in his prep career on the football field, basketball court and the track. Last season as a junior, Young had 29 receptions for 367 yards and four touchdowns for the Generals. He also carried the ball 39 times for 255 yards and two scores and had 27 tackles and three interceptions on defense.

Young is considered one of the top all-purpose athletes in the state in the Class of 2019. His versatility makes his position at the college level uncertain. He could be used on either side of the ball in a variety of roles. He is rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and the No. 8 prospect in Indiana.

Young chose Ohio State over Iowa, Purdue, Indiana and Michigan State.
