Looking at Lex's instagram page, he only follows a few schools: UCLA, Oregon, Colorado, NAU (but not the track account), and Stanford. My guess is Stanford since he follows the school page, track page, the athletics page, women's soccer page, and most importantly the alumni page
Leo is also following Stanford and NAU, but does not follow Oregon, Colorado, and UCLA. Guessing both end up in Palo Alto next fall
Good for them, use running to get a good degree.
As a Tufts alum I love that. But 8:55 in the 90’s was flying! The nescac generally has smart fast kids though.
I wonder what the chances of the going to separate places are? Fairly low I’d imagine
I’ve never understood that backup plan mentality. If you’re passionate about something you should go for it. Athletics is no different than any other passion. Pursue your dreams with boldness, and learn what it takes to be the best. THAT is the path to a successful life.
This is so dumb tbh. They are 2 of the best recruits in HS history, if pro running is what they want to do then they absolutely should optimize for that. Not everyone needs to be focused on getting a 9-5 job.
Sounds like they’re going to be doing both in Palo Alto
Thank you for your response to my spot on post.
To the Stanford voters, no way they are "that smart"---but they'd get accepted if they chose there because they are "smart enough."
I hope it’s UCLA for the drama
I’m expecting that this thread will have them reconsider their choice
A reliable source close to the recruiting of the Young brothers told me they were down to three schools just prior to Brosnan going to UCLA. NAU and Stanford are one and two in no particular order then UVA a solid three. This was just before Brosnan's announcement so who knows at this point.
It will be interesting to see if they go the same place or not. Imagine this board will blow up either way but if they DON'T go to NAU or UCLA or don't go to the same school that would shock me.
Aidan Cox from Coe Brown Academy also committed to UVA earlier this summer.
Personally I would never choose a school they said where my brother goes. I went to a completely different college than either of my brothers.
I always find it weird when Brothers go off to the same school just because their sibling is going there. The only exception is if they're part of a legacy with their father.
North, South, East or West, there is only ONE Hhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaavvvvvvvvuuuuuuuuhhhhhhd!!
Track is not that lucrative. One serious injury and you are done. And I don’t think track has a good pension plan.
South Harmon Institute of Technology.
there are too many old dudes on this forum speculating about a couple of teenage boys lives and decisions….
I happen to know for a fact that they're going to Ave Maria in Florida to be coached by ALAN WEBB!!! They will run cross country and track and also pick up swimming so they can train under him all year long! Expect all their instagram posts going forward to contain ecclesiastical Latin! They will even both shave their heads to become aerodynamic and both move to triathlon within a year! WEBB IS BACK BABY
