Cory Young, a redshirt freshman running back for the Boise State Broncos out of the Mountain West Conference, will be joined by big brother and ex-Stanford Cardinal running back Kelsey Young.
The brothers hope to be an impact in the backfield on and off the Smurf Turf come fall.
Depth at the running back position will certainly not be an issue for Boise State in the 2015 college football season, with the Young brothers helping assemble the Broncos’ running attack.
Sophomore Jeremy McNichols, junior Devan Delmas and senior Jack Fields will give Boise State five adequate RBs. Will one of the five emerge as a star at the position, and become the next Jay Ajayi.
The Broncos’ stud running back ran for 1,823 yards and 32 touchdowns in 2014.
The Broncos, the class of the MWC, are the reigning conference champions and will start their 2015 season fresh off a 38-30 Fiesta Bowl victory over the Arizona Wildcats in a New Year’s Six matchup.
The elder Young, Kelsey, is listed at 5-foot-10 and 191-pounds and will be a graduate student when the 2015 campaign kicks off — his speed in space allowed him to gain 331 yards on 66 carries for the Cardinal in 2o14. Kelsey has already earned a computer science degree from Stanford, and plans to receive his master’s degree from Boise State.
With the addition of Kelsey, the Broncos will have no trouble competing for the Mountain Division as well as the MWC crown in 2015.
