As the majority of Boise State’s 2017 recruitng class becomes official today, BroncoNationNews.com will take a look back at what this big-time Bronco-pledge had to say after committing this past summer.
Young said he knew Boise State was the school for him after forming a bond with defensive back’s coach Ashley Ambrose. “He was being honest with me and I just talked with him the most out of all my coaches… he was just honest with me.” He also said he has a good relationship with safeties’ coach Gabe Franklin.
“I like that (Boise State has) five DB’s,” Young said, “they mix it up and run a little bit of everything. I like what they run.” Young added that he plans on playing cornerback at Boise State but that he “can move around and play whatever coach wants me to play.”
“I just want to come there and make plays and make a name for myself.”
When he committed, Young said that Boise State was on his mind the most of any school that he was considering, “it’s the school that I think I will be most comfortable with.”
