He recentlysat down with SI All-American recruiting analyst John Garcia and talkedabout his size, his favorite quarterback and other topics before joining Alabama as a mid-year enrollee.

“For me, you learn to deal to the challenges of being a few inches shorter than the prototype, ”Young said,” as far as being able to see through the line, making sure you can create angles with the ball, being able to let that go and make sure you’re going to get through your progressions .

When asked who he patterns his game after, Young made a surprising pick.“For me, someone I pattern my game after, my favorite quarterback in the league is Aaron Rodgers,” Young said. “The way that he can manipulate himself as far as throwing angle, making sure how he moves in the pocket, being able to extend plays, but making sure he all that with his eyes downfield as a passer is something I definitely strive to be. ” (********************************************** ********************************************** Read MoreBrave Browser
