The Florida product packs an impressive burst into his 5-foot-11, 200-pound frame. This burst is seen when Young quickly accelerates after receiving the handoff. He also has long speed, and it is proven when you take a look back at his track background. He holds a PR of 10.81 in the 100-meter dash. 

Young is also a physical runner, who easily explodes through and breaks arm tackles. He is also efficient out of the backfield in the passing game.
