Nice Athletic article about Young - https://theathletic.com/1657576/202...d-to-find-closure-before-he-could-be-himself/
It mentions how gracious Collier was to grant him his release. Sounds like Kyle ended up in a pretty dark place starting college with homesickness and his father's death still hurting him. A quote from his mother (hope no one takes this the wrong way): "“Thank God he ended up at Ohio State and not five hours away at Butler,’’ Mary says. “If we had gone through the same thing, with the homesickness, I don’t think he would have made it. Someone was looking out for us. That’s all I can say.’’
Young has been a solid starter at OSU . It’s very tough losing a parent at anytime but particularly when you are trying to adjust to college and the demands of playing a sport. I don’t take what his mother said other than referring to the distance and homesickness and her need for him to be closer.
Especially given the loss of his father, I never had a problem with him following Holtmann to OSU. I am glad he had his family close and it worked out for him.
