Young is coming off a strong junior season with the Pac-5 Braves, who he helped reach the Pac-5 Division quarterfinals. St. John Bosco (8-4), the third-place team from the Trinity League, fell to San Clemente in the playoffs.
Young finished with 1,035 yards, including 166 against San Clemente.
Young burst onto the Orange County scene as starting freshman running back at Irvine. But he left Irvine after the 2009 season, transferring to Tustin. Young was denied athletic eligibility at Tustin and transferred to St. John Bosco, where he sat out his sophomore season.
As a junior, he showed improved speed, power and ability to run between the tackles. Scout.com reports that Young has been offered by Arizona.
At Tustin, he could join a backfield that already includes standout Terence Martinez. Young’s eligibly status to play at Tustin is unclear.
The run-oriented Tillers won the CIF-SS Southwest Division title in 2011.
