Broncos Add Kelsey Young From Stanford
April 21, 2015

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State football head coach Bryan Harsin announced Tuesday the signing of running back Kelsey Young to a Financial Aid Agreement.

Young, the older brother of redshirt freshman running back Cory Young, is transferring from Stanford where he earned a degree in computer science. He is eligible immediately, and has one year of eligibility remaining.

Named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List in 2014, Young was the Cardinal's second-leading rusher this past season, picking up 331 yards on 66 rush attempts - an average of 5.0 yards per rush. He also rushed 14 times for 110 yards and a touchdown in 2013, and 14 times for 160 yards and two touchdowns in 2012. He combined for 16 catches and 142 yards receiving from 2012-14.

Young also played in two Rose Bowls with the Cardinal, highlighted by his 16-yard touchdown run in Stanford's 20-14 victory over Wisconsin in the 2013 edition.

Young redshirted at Stanford in 2011, joining the Cardinal from Norco High School in Norco, Calif. During his prep career he was named a SuperPrep All-American, rushing for more than 2,000 yards and 30 touchdowns as a senior. The three-time All-CIF Southern Section selection also picked up 1,767 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior.

Coming out of high school Young was one of the nation's top running backs, ranked No. 21 nationally at his position by both Scout.com and Rivals.com.
