Arizona transfer safety Scottie Young commits to WVU

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU has picked up some help in the secondary with the verbal commitment of Arizona transfer safety Scottie Young Jr. He announced his commitment to join the Mountaineers Saturday on his Twitter page.

Young entered the transfer portal exactly one month ago and he comes to Morgantown after playing three seasons for the Wildcats. He is reunited with WVU defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae. Addae coached young in Tucson during his freshman season in 2017.

Scottie Young started 30 games in 3 seasons at Arizona.

Young was a three-year starter for the Wildcats. He made 30 starts while appearing in 32 games. In his junior season this past fall, Young led all defensive backs on the team with 66 total tackles. He posted a season-best nine tackles in the Wildcats’ season finale against Arizona State.

In three seasons, Young collected 157 tackles (9 for loss) and he intercepted 5 passes. He was a three-star recruit out of San Diego’s Helix High School.
