Bryon Young

CLASS: 2019
POSITION: SDE
HT, WT: 6-4 270
SCHOOL: West Jones 
CITY, STATE: Laurel, MS 
STATUS: HARD COMMIT: ALABAMA 7/4/18  
# OF OFFERS: 11 offers 
UGA OFFER:  Yes
NEWS:
Byron Young is a four-star defensive end from Laurel, Mississippi. He stands at 6-4, 270 pounds. According to the lastest 247 Composite rankings, he’s the No. 172 overall player, the No. 12 SDE and the No. 10 Mississippi prospect. Young currently holds 11 offers with the latest coming from Arkansas on February 27. He released top 10 on March 27. The top ten schools were Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, and Auburn. He visited Georgia on March 3 and Auburn on March 24. On July 4, Young committed to Alabama.
Young recorded 50 tackles last season, 22 tackles for loss, 14 sacks and four forced fumbles. He’s so strong on the edge. Young looks like one of the biggest guys on the field and he uses that to his advantage. He’s got great vision and is patient. Young’s a playmaker and a hard hitter. He’s got great footwork and just needs to work on getting past the lineman who’s covering him. Young wraps up well and doesn’t let guys get away from him. He’s not the fastest guy, but if he sheds a few pounds he may get a little quicker. However, I will say that he can cover ground, just not as fast as some of the others in the 2019 class. With a little work, Young will make a team very happy at the next level.
