Redshirt freshman defensive end Willie Young has earned a pair of freshman All-American honors after the Wolfpack's season. The Sporting News recently named Young a second-team freshman All-American. He was named to The Sporting News' ACC All-Freshman team as well, while Rivals.com named him a second-team freshman All-American last week.
Young, from West Palm Beach, Fla., notched 44 tackles, including five for losses, and had five QB hurries on the season. He returned an interception 34-yards for a touchdown in the loss to Clemson in one of the top defensive plays of the season.
