College career - Transfer from USC to Crimson Tide

After finishing high school, Bryce was first recruited by the University of Southern California (USC) to continue his football career. However, he soon de-committed from USC and decided to join the University of Alabama and the Crimson Tide football team for coach Nick Saban, which would prove the right move for his career.

The deciding factor for the young quarterback’s flip from USC Trojans to the Alabama Crimson Tide football team was the offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian and his system, which is similar to what Bryce used to run in his high school team at Mater Dei High School, stated Bryce’s father, Craig Young.[3]

Bryce’s parents have been genuinely supportive of his career and encouraged him to follow his dreams. In an interview for On3, his father explained how they helped him build Bryce’s football brand by focusing on the product first - being good at football, before creating a brand.[4]

“Before you can have a brand, you have to have a product that performs, or that excels, to the point that a brand would partner with [you],” Craig explained.

He also added that by focusing on excelling in the craft of football, Bryce could get strong NIL and branding opportunities.
