IOWA HAWKEYE FOOTBALL RECRUITING 2016: NEW HAWKEYE RUNNING BACK TOREN YOUNG

New, 1 comment

Three-star running back from Monona Grove, Wisconsin.

Toren Young

Running back

Hometown: Monona Grove, Wisconsin
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 205
247 Sports Composite Rating: 3-star, 109th best running back
Other Offers: None
Caring is Creepy: We didn't have one. Perhaps because he committed January 25th in 2015 and it was a sad time.

COMPARISON: Young dominated a low level of high school in Wisconsin and set all kinds of records. He is a thicker, but slower, version or Eric Graham. Both running backs were untouchable in high school but how that translates to Big Ten football remains to be seen. Graham will likely be the 4th option for Iowa in 2016 unless one of the incoming freshmen surpasses him in Fall camp. Young doesn't appear to be that back but will be a nice replacement for LeShun Daniels Jr when he departs after his senior campaign.
