Bryce Young of Alabama won the Heisman Trophy last year, but he could definitely make a living as a basketball player if he decided to change things up.
The 20-year-handles old’s and lights-out shooting are on display in a recent video of him doing some offseason cross-training.
Young is clearly at ease on the court, despite Nick Saban’s displeasure with the thought of his main quarterback running 1s on the parquet.
Before focusing on football, the Pennsylvania native turned Californian played basketball and possesses some impressive skills.
Young is so athletic that one of his old trainers claimed he could have gotten a scholarship to play college basketball if he had continued with it.
“He had good athleticism, a nice handling, a strong shot, good decision-making, and he could guard.” Trainer Mike Teller told AL.com, “He was a tremendously good all-around point guard.” “I’ve been doing this for 19 years, and there’s no doubt in my mind that he’d have been a Division I point guard.”
That’s a lot of talks, but the footage backs it up. Young, who stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 194 pounds, maybe too small for some programmes.
He could have easily lit up the scoreboard at a mid-major school, and he would have had a few opportunities to play in the Power 5.
Of course, we’ll never know what might have happened. On March 21, Young and Alabama will resume spring practice. Meanwhile, he continues to hoop.
