With Young, Speed is Key

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we caught up with Nimitz running back Dre'Vian Young from Houston, Texas. His coach spoke with us to let us know that things are picking up as it pertains to his senior running back…

He was once reported to be a part of the Kansas State recruiting class, but that ship has since sailed. Now, Houston (TX) Nimitz running back Dre'Vian Young has a whole new list of suitors, according to his high school coach Robert Toomer.

"He (Dre'Vian) has already been offered by Utah and Boise State, but now he has Washington looking at him," Toomer said. "Washington coaches said that they are going to offer."

It looks as though it is a West Coast type of party as the recruitment for the 5-foot-9, 175-pound Young is looking for the right fit going forward. 

So what is about Young that has all of the coaches wanting to get him on the roster?

"Speed. That's one of the biggest things he has going for him," Toomer said. "The coaches love that speed, especially Washington. Utah said he would be perfect in that system and you know how they use players at Boise (State).

"The thing about Dre'Vian is that a number of coaches don't know about him yet, but a bunch are starting to come around. The use of Hudl has helped out a lot."

On the year, Young has run for over 400 yards and scored six touchdowns. In his last update, Young stated that he would like to visit Utah the first opportunity he can.
