We are admittedly a little bit late on this news, but the Michigan State Spartans landed 2019 three-star running back Aaron Young on Sunday night.
Young plays high school ball at Coatesville Area Senior High School in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. He is the first commit from Pennsylvania in the 2019 class. A little bit on the smaller side, Young checks in at 5-feet-9-inches tall and weighs 190 pounds.
The three-star tailback ranks as the No. 37 running back in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is also listed as the 11th best player in his home state of Pennsylvania, and checks in at No. 577 nationally in the Composite. Rivals, meanwhile, ranks Young as the 30th running back in the 2019 class, and No. 8 in his state.
Young built an extensive offer list, which in addition to Michigan State, included Penn State, Stanford, Arkansas, Northwestern, Indiana, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, North Carolina, West Virginia and many others. The Big Ten was particularly interested in Young, as he had nine offers from the conference.
The Spartans originally offered Young back in February. He is now the third running back to verbally commit to Michigan State in the 2019 class. Young joins fellow three-star halfbacks Anthony Williams Jr. and Brandon Wright.
MSU’s 2019 recruiting class now stands at 18 commitments. The Spartans currently sit at 24th nationally and fourth in the Big Ten in the recruiting ranks.
