VIDEO: Young Talks Adjustments
On the first days of camp:
They're going real good. We have a good offense and a great quarterback in Brett Hundley. I'm just out here competing with the rest of my teammates.
On his biggest adjustment:
Time management and getting myself into the playbook. Learning from the guys in the game and that's one of the ways I learn.
On Jeff Ulbrich:
Coach Brick is a coach but he's also a father figure. He's always there when I need him. When my parents are not there. He's a student of the game, played in the big league, the things I have, I want to get better at.
On taking on a leadership role:
Coach Brick has us rolling so I have to talk sometimes. That's my role as a Mike, I have to start something special early.
On if he's surprised with his success so far:
I could do better. It's the small things you have to do to become great.
On his size:
6-2, 230. I don't want to be fat, but if I can move at 230, I'll be fine.
On being in the film room all summer:
Every day I was in the film room, just learning. I had nothing else to do. I don't mess with girls or anything. I'm here for football, that's what I'm here for. I play football for a reason. When you go in the playbook, you pick up different things. I think we can be special.
On how much different things are from his high school:
It's not so much different. It may be called different things, but it's not real different. I'm so thankful to have him.
On picking UCLA over the SEC:
All those SEC offers, they can stay where it's at, I'm here at UCLA, being the best I can be. It's lovely here, I don't think I'll ever go home. Nah, I'm just kidding.
On picking things up from Myles Jack and Eric Kendricks:
What I do now, I get it from them. Stay in the playbook, knowing nothing. Some of the things they like about me and respect about me.
