BIOGRAPHY: A reserve ball carrier who has seen extensive playing time since his freshman campaign. Senior rushing totals included 137/591/7 when he also added 23/132/1 catching the ball. Junior ground numbers included 461 yards. Experienced returning kicks.
POSITIVES: Instinctive ball carrier best between the tackles. Displays good vision, waits for blocks to develop and finds the running lanes. Drives his feet on contact and works to pick up positive yardage. Flashes strength in his lower body.
NEGATIVES: Not a fluid cut-back runner and slows down when he must immediately change direction. More of a one-speed ball carrier who cannot run to daylight.
ANALYSIS: A productive role player, Young offers solid size/speed numbers. Does not stand out in any single aspect yet does enough things well to catch on as a fifth running back.
