In looking to use their fifth scholarship on the class of 2012, Billy Kennedy and his staff at Texas A&M wanted to go big.
They accomplished that Tuesday when Andrew Young pulled the trigger on a commitment.
A 6-foot-9 junior college sophomore at Monterey (Calif.) Peninsula who hails from Oregon, Young gave the Aggies the nod over Oregon and N.C. State.
"I actually chose Texas A&M a few hours ago," Young told Rivals.com. "It's just the best fit all around and is a great opportunity to go in and play and win."
Physical and pretty athletic around the rim, Young is a three-star prospect who doesn't shy from contact. As a sophomore, he led all California jucos in both scoring and rebounding so he was as productive as could possibly be.
With Young on board, the Aggies have now added some size to a class that already featured plenty of perimeter help.
