Tennessee Running Back commits to Mizzou Football

This is Missouri’s 9th commitment of the 2020 class.

The recruiting momentum for Mizzou Football continued today with the commitment from of the top all purpose backs in the 2020 class:

Young is rated as a consensus 3-star recruit, and the 6th best all-purpose back in the class, and a top 15 player in the state of Tennessee. A native of Knoxville, most had thought the Volunteers would be the team to beat for his pledge. That was until he had a chance to visit the University of Missouri this past weekend which was enough for Young to make his commitment. That and he likes winning 50-17, rather than being on the other side of those drubbings.

Young is the second running back commitment and provides a nice compliment to the bruising style of Texas native Dominique Johnson. Young is a burner who could fit in nicely behind Tyler Badie in that role of the dual threat back in Missouri’s offense.
