Here’s what Nick Saban had to say about Young on National Signing Day after signing the quarterback out of California.

“I just absolutely love the guy. I love his character. He’s got a great family. He’s got all the right stuff, and I think that’s really important in the quarterback position,” Saban said of Young. “You’ve heard me say this many times before – if you play quarterback, it’s hard to play the position if the people around you don’t play well, so having great leadership qualities can contribute to that. I think Bryce certainly possesses those qualities.”
