After the commitment of Toneil Carter a few days ago, Tom Herman was still looking for one more running back in the 2017 class.
Today, Herman got that running back in the form of Westfield’s Daniel Young.
Young was committed to Houston until several days ago. Young was a member of the Touchdown Club of Houston pre-season team. During his senior year, he ran for 19 touchdowns and 1290 yards on 176 carries.
How he fits at Texas: Young is one of the more interesting running backs I’ve seen out of high school. He lacks breakaway speed but his first few steps typically get him to the hole and he has a spin move he uses liberally to help him cut through traffic. He’s not a guy Texas will want to try and use to flank opponents on the perimeter but he’s a wrecking ball between the tackles and if he learns to block he could be a nice complement as a RB/FB hybrid. – IB
Young is the 11th member of UT’s Class of 2017. He joins Cade Brewer (Lake Travis), Toneil Carter (Langham Creek), Joshua Rowland (MGCCC, Juco) Taquon Graham (Temple), Montrell Estell (Hooks), Kobe Boyce (Lake Dallas), Damion Miller (John Tyler), Sam Ehlinger (Austin Westlake), Lagaryonn Carson (Liberty-Eylau), and Josh Thompson (Nacogdoches).
