RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes announced Friday that two quarterbacks have joined the football team. Scotty Young and Andy McAlindon have both enrolled in summer school at Tech and will be at fall camp.
Young, a transfer from Texas Tech, will be a redshirt sophomore this fall after spending two years in Lubbock but not seeing any action. He is a 2010 graduate of Ryan High School in Denton, Texas and was a high school All-American. A 6-2, 210-pound quarterback, Young led all Dallas-area quarterbacks with 4,467 passing yards and 64 touchdown passes his senior year of high school, 15 more touchdowns than the next quarterback. He was named All-America by EA Sports and MaxPreps and was named the Texas Gatorade Player of the Year and the Associated Press Texas Player of the Year.
McAlindon joins the Bulldogs after spending one year at American River Junior College where he guided his team to the school’s first-ever perfect season with an 11-0 mark, capped off by a 41-18 win in the Central Division Bowl over Chabot College. He set the school’s all-time and single-season records with 2,875 passing yards and 36 passing touchdowns in his one season at American River.
Dykes also announced Friday that signees Adairius Barnes, Kentrell Brice, Vernon Butler, Kenneth Dixon, Thaddeus Medford and Tra’vez Taylor have all enrolled in school for the first summer session. All of Tech’s signees from the 2012 signing class are expected to academically qualify.
