Ravens to meet with V. Young

OWINGS MILLS -- University of Texas quarterback Vince Young is scheduled to meet with the Baltimore Ravens' brass today at the team's training complex.

Young has rebounded well from his low test score on the Wonderlic logic and intelligence exam at the scouting combine with a strong workout on the Texas campus, according to scouts who were impressed with his 4.57 speed over 40 yards and how he dropped back from under center after operating out of the shotgun a lot for the Longhorns.

Just in case Young unexpectedly slides out of the top 10 selections and is available for the Ravens' 13th overall selection, they want to have as much information as possible about the consensus All-American. Plus, there's always the chance that the Ravens will wind up competing against him one day and will have firsthand knowledge about the 6-foot-4, 228-pound athletic passer by hosting him for one of their 20 designated visits with college prospects.

Young has drawn significant interest from several teams, including the Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals and his hometown Houston Texans. Quarterbacks coach Rick Neuheisel and director of college scouting Eric DeCosta attended his workout in Austin, Texas.

Young led Texas to the national title with a Rose Bowl victory over USC, running for 200 yards and three touchdowns and completing 30 of 40 passes for 267 yards.
