Bryce Young is a four star defensive end out of Charlotte Christian High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 6-6 250 pound defensive end has had his recruitment blow up over the past several months. Young holds offers from Miami, Tennessee, Duke, USC, Penn State, and many others, but has committed to the University of Notre Dame.


You may have heard of his father, Bryant Young, who played for Lou Holtz and the Irish in the early 90’s. Young was a 1st team All-American at Notre Dame, 7th overall draft pick to the 49’ers, Super Bowl champion, and NFL Hall of Famer. Quite the impressive resume. It is safe to say that Bryce Young was made a priority for the coaching staff to follow in his father’s footsteps and choose the Irish.


If you turn on his film, there is a lot to like about Young’s game and his potential. Young finished his Junior year with a total of 92 total tackles, 6 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. The first thing that sticks out about Young is his length and athleticism. He has very long arms to go along with his quick feet. He shows good quickness off the edge, quick lateral movements and shows good ability to defend against the run. Young needs to continue developing his pass rush techniques, but that will come with time.


The ceiling for Young is extremely high. With a year or two working with Coach Balis in the weight room, Young has the ability to be a dominant college player.

It's worth noting that Young's teammate at Charlotte Christian is Micah Gilbert, a 4 star wide receiver who will be announcing his college decision on May 2nd. Both Young and Gilbert made the trip to Notre Dame for the Blue-Gold game, so there is a good chance that Gilbert may be picking the Irish as well.


Overall, this is a big pick up for Al Washington and the Notre Dame defense. For Notre Dame to compete for National Championships, they have to dominate up front on both sides of the ball. Landing a player like Young is a huge step in the right direction for where the Irish want to go.
