Young is an emerging talent

WR Aaron Young

One of the more impressive receivers we've seen this spring is Murrieta (Calif.) Murrieta Valley's Aaron Young.

Aaron Young is a long, lanky 6-4, 200 pound receiver who had his coming out party at the Passing Down 7v7 tourney earlier this month. Young and his BBT squad won the tournament and Young too home MVP honors.

The athlete was equally impressive at the IMG West Regional 7v7 two weeks ago and has a very nice skill set to him. He's a natural pass catcher with very good ball control and uses his frame to dominate smaller cornerbacks.

"I know I still have a lot to work on," Young said. "I need to get better at my route running and get my speed up more. I'm happy with my hands and how I'm catching the ball and I'm using my size well. I'm just having fun out here and getting some work in."

On the recruiting front, Young recently landed his first offer and is hearing from a few other programs as well.

"The Duke offer was big for me," Moore said. "They emailed me and said they liked my film and then after getting my transcripts, they went ahead and offered. To get my first offer from a school like Duke means a lot. They're a great academic school and the football program is getting better every year.

"I'm also hearing a lot from Colorado, Oregon and Washington both said they're coming by to see me in the spring and USC has sent me some letters too. I'm going to camp at Washington and Oregon this summer and probably a visit a few more west coast schools too but I'm still figuring that out."

Young said he's not close to making his decision and will play out the process.

"I want to wait until Signing Day," Young said. "I want to do my trips and wait as long as possible to make sure I'm doing the right thing. I'll visit Duke for sure, that will be my first visit I take and then I'll just wait and see what other schools show interest to figure out the rest of my trips."
