Texas Tech Gets Verbal Commitment From Top Texas QB

Texas Tech gets another big time Texas Quarterback. Denton Ryan's outstanding young quarterback, Scotty Young has verbally committed to play for the Red Raiders in 2010.

Young is one of the best quarterbacks in the state. He had a spectacular junior season, throwing for 4,495 yards and 65 touchdowns. The 65 touchdowns was just two shy of former Red Raider QB Graham Harrell's Texas high school record of 67 single season touchdown passes. He was also named to the Texas 4A all-state second team as a junior after leading his team to the Class 4A Division I Region I Semifinals.

Harrell's success as the most prolific passer in college football had a very big impact on Young. One of Scotty’s coaches at Denton Ryan is Zac Harrell, Graham's older brother. Coach Harrell was a great resource for Scotty and one of the reasons he committed to the Red Raiders.

Young also had offers from Arizona, Baylor, SMU, Houston, and Texas Tech and is hearing from schools like LSU, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and Texas.
