Looking For Wide-out Talent

Texas State is losing loads of graduating talent at receiver. Here is a "Young" receiver that can come in and potentially contribute at a need position.

A week ago Will Young, a 6'3" 195 pound receiver from McGill-Tollen HS in Mobile, Alabama received word that he was being offered a scholarship to join the Bobcats for the upcoming class.

Young is a big receiver who has 4.6 speed and likes to be "physical, use my size to my advantage." Young considers himself to be a complete receiver, but knows his strong suit is as a chain mover and that his size is a big reason. He estimated that he had about 50 catches for about 700 yards and 11 tds this past season.

"They think I could play as a freshman," said Young.

Immediate playing time would be nice, but also has no reservations about red-shirting because just like his name says, he is very young. He should only be a junior at his age, but his parents started him in school early. He would like to be coached hard and get stronger and faster. He also wants a school that will get him prepared for life after football.

Young has never been on the TXST campus, but when coach Tatum came by his school he was sure to tell him about the campus, it's atmosphere and having a river run right through it. With campus atmosphere being a big key in his recruitment it is very important he gets on campus for a visit. This do it all receiver has had none yet and has only been to camps so far. He plans to make all his visits before he makes his decision, so at this point he's looking to make decision on signing day.

He holds offers from Navy, Jacksonville St., Arkansas St. and has received interest from Southern Miss and Vanderbilt
