Bryce Young was the Heisman Trophy winner for Alabama football last season, but here is all of the information you could want to know about the QB.
Bryce Young didn’t waste any time becoming an Alabama football legend. In his first season as a starter for the Crimson Tide, the quarterback led his team to a berth in the National Championship Game and also captured the Heisman Trophy.
Now he comes into the 2022 season with expectations to win a national title but also to be one of the top picks in the 2023 NFL Draft and rightfully so. With that said, his raised profile might have fans wondering a lot quite about him.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a rundown of everything you might need to know about Young.
Bryce Young age
The Alabama quarterback is going to be in that sweet spot for NFL teams in terms of age as he’s just 21 years old. He’ll be that same age when the draft happens as his birthday is July 25, 2001, making him even more enticing given his youth.
Where did Bryce Young go to high school?
Young is originally from Santa Ana, CA and went to high school at one of the historic quarterback hotbeds for recruiting, noted Mater Dei High School.
Bryce Young height and weight
If you think that Bryce Young looks a bit slight compared to other quarterbacks, particularly elite prospects, you aren’t wrong. Alabama lists the quarterback at 6-foot, 194 pounds for the 2022 season, which is actually larger than he was as a recruit when he came to Tuscaloosa at 5-foot-11, 183 pounds.
Bryce Young transfer history
Despite being in the transfer portal era and not starting immediately for the Crimson Tide, Young has never transferred. He’s been at Bama since Day 1 and has not wavered.
Bryce Young recruiting profile
Shockingly, Young wasn’t the highest-rated recruit in the country for the 2020 class. He was No. 2 in the nation in the 247 Sports Composite rankings behind only current Clemson star defensive tackle Bryan Bresee (and it was a close race for the top spot). Obviously given that, though, the Alabama signal-caller was the highest-ranked quarterback in the recruiting class.
