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.
Alabama’s running back room returns Jase McClellan, Roydell Williams and Jame Miller. Young joins Justice Haynes as the Tide’s newest additions. This is an impressive room, thatcould be featured in a deep rotation for the Tide this upcoming season.
