Following quite the journey from Arkansas-native Kendall Young, he announced that he would be joining the Yellow Jackets!

Young had initially committed to Vanderbilt during his senior year of high school before decommitting the night before the early signing period. His decommitment coincided with being arrested for breaking and entering. In March of this year, he tweeted that no conviction had risen from the charges and reopened his commitment.

As a recruit, Young stands at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds and is rated as a three-star recruit by the 247 Sports Composite (0.8464) and a two-star by Rivals (5.3) and will likely start his career as an outside linebacker, though he could grow into an end.

Film

As noted in his film, Young played in eight games during his senior season and finished with 100 tackles and nine sacks. That’s pretty solid. Young projects best as an edge and brings some really great speed. I also really appreciate that he doesn’t just try to hit the ballcarrier as hard as he can; he does a good job of wrapping him up. He also brings a few pretty solid pass rush moves.
