National recruiting analyst believes Alabama QB Bryce Young could develop into multi-time Heisman Trophy finalist
The Bryce Young hype continues to grow.
Alabama’s true freshman quarterback hasn’t played a down of college football yet but that hasn’t stopped many from suggesting the five-star signee will prove to be too talented to keep off the field in Tuscaloosa by the end of the season.
After the explosive offensive renaissance at Alabama engineered by the arm talent of Tua Tagovailoa and aided by the wealth of receiver talent within the Crimson Tide program in recent seasons, many predict that Young and Alabama’s next generation of receivers will continue the trend as long as Steve Sarkisian remains the play-caller in Tuscaloosa.
Taking that a step further, 247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong recently shared his opinion that Young very well could be the next Alabama player to bring a Heisman Trophy to Tuscaloosa.
In fact, Wiltfong isn’t ready to rule out multiple trips to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony for Young in the years to come.
“I would think that he’s got a shot to win the Heisman Trophy,” Wiltfong said to Adam Kramer of Bleacher Report. “He’s going to have so many great players around him at Alabama, and if he’s the player that we think he’s going to be, I think you’re talking about a guy who is going to be invited to New York, maybe more than once.”
Also included in Bleacher Report’s story on Young is an interesting nugget of information from Young’s high school coach, Bruce Rollinson.
According to Robinson, the head coach of Mater Dei who coached former Hawaii standout Colt Brennan and former USC quarterbacks Matt Barkley, Matt Leinart and JT Daniels, Young is the “greatest quarterback in (Mater Dei) history.”
Considering the accomplishments of some of those signal-callers in college, that’s some incredible praise for Young.
