IOWA HAWKEYE FOOTBALL RECRUITING 2016: NEW HAWKEYE WIDE RECEIVER DEVONTE YOUNG

New, 1 comment

Three-star wide receiver from Waldorf, Maryland.

Devonte Young

Wide Receiver

Height: 6'
Weight: 190
247 Sports Composite Rating: 3-star, 156th rated WR

Caring is Creepy: Have a seat Devonte Young

COMPARISON: Young may end up in the slot at Iowa.  He reminds me a bit of current Hawkeye receiver Riley McCarron. Young appears to be the most physically ready of Iowa's three receiver commits. If the Iowa coaching staff may want to stagger the three prospects, Young could be the one who gets playing time. However, Jermanic Smith may have locked down the outside, and Adrian Falconer will likely find his way on the field. If Iowa doesn't need a freshman to step in right away, Young could find playing time on special teams.
