Selvin Young a Buckeye? It almost happened

Texas coach Mack Brown wasn't above using a little negative recruiting -- at least in a meteorological sense -- after learning that running back Selvin Young considered attending Ohio State rather than Texas during his recruitment.

"When I was recruited by Texas, I told Coach Brown of thinking about going to Ohio State," Young said. "He looked at me like I was crazy."

Brown, considered one of college football's master recruiters, had a quick comeback that made Young change his mind.
