Look: Three Years Ago Thursday Bryce Young Flips to Alabama
Three years ago Thursday was a monumental today for the Alabama Crimson Tide and for the overall state of recruiting in the future.
Then incoming freshman Bryce Young was committed to the University of Southern California (USC) and planned to enroll in the fall of 2020. The California native had been committed to the Trojans since he was a junior at Mater Dei High School.
Young visited Alabama's game against Southern Miss, then flipped his commitment the following day from the Trojans to the Crimson Tide.
"For me, I just felt like this was the best thing for me. It definitely wasn't an overnight thing," Young said.
Since Young has arrived at Alabama he has won a national championship, Heisman Trophy, Maxwell Award, Davy O'Brien Award and AP College Football Player of the Year.
Last season the reigning Heisman winner led Alabama to their 28th SEC Championship and back to the National Championship.
The SEC Player of the year threw for 4,872 yards with a 67% completion percentage with 47 passing touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Young is focused on leading Alabama to a national championship in his second year as a starter. In 2022 Young is off to a great start, leading Alabama to a 3-0 start, throwing for nine touchdowns with two interceptions and 644 yards passing.
