At just 10 years old, Bunchie Young has already gotten a full-ride offer to play football for a Division 1 team.
As crazy as that sounds, Bunchie’s highlights speak for themselves. The kid’s talent is undeniable.

After seeing him in action, does it make sense why the University of Illinois is trying to recruit Bunchie?

MaxPreps reports that Young scored 30 touchdowns and intercepted four passes last season, splitting his time between running back, defensive back and wide receiver. He’s also clocked a 12.4 in the 100-meter dash, which is unbelievable considering he’s only in the fourth grade. It comes as no surprise to Mike Evans, Bunchie’s trainer, that he’s already getting offers.
“Bunchie is the fastest kid in the country, and his eye-coordination and work ethic is unmatched,” Evans, owner of Los Angeles-based LacedFacts training, told 247Sports.com.
Though National Signing Day is still a shade under a decade away for Young, the excitement is already building.
