FOX Sports Next is in the streets bringing you all of the coverage. We caught up with Houston Nimitz running Dre'Vian Young, who just made his commitment. He and his coach talk about the decision in this Fox Sports Next update.

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has a knack for finding talent in the Lone Star State. And he has found another player who has flow under the radar. 

From Houston (TX) Nimitz, running back Dre'Vian Young decided that he wants to play football for the Big 12 squad.

“I committed to Kansas State a couple of days ago. They run the ball a lot and I like that,” Young said.

According to Nimitz coach Robert Toomer, the 5-foot-9, 180-pound Young is known in many circles as a track athlete. But Toomer, and clearly the K-State coaches know that Young will bring more than that to the table.

It was assistant coach Mo Latimore who was on the trail and hauled in the talented back Young.

“Coach Latimore called me and said that they are looking to offer Dre'Vian. All that needed to happen was to run it by the head coach,” Toomer said. “I had Dre'Vian call Latimore and he committed. He (Dre'Vian) wanted to focus on his senior year and just get it out of the way.”

Toomer said that early in the process, Texas coaches had come down and showed interest. But the running back commitment was filled in this class for the Longhorns. 


“I tip my hat to coach Snyder and his staff. Dre'Vian is a good back and nobody really knows about him,” Toomer said. “He (Dre'Vian) will need some fine tuning, but K-State is getting one heckuva back.”
