Draft Profile: Bio
Isheem Young attended Imhotep Institute High School and was rated a 3-star prospect by 247 Sports with a scout's rating of 0.868, going unranked by ESPN. Following high school, Young opted to join Iowa State.

In 2020 as a freshman Young saw action in 12 games and played a total of 463 snaps at Safety for the Cyclones. He recorded 40 tackles, 10 assists, while adding 14 stops. In coverage Young notched up 3 pass break ups, one interception, and an impressive QB rating when targetted of 68.4.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 12 games and logged 580 snaps for the Cyclones. He made 46 tackles, 21 assists, and had 16 stops. In coverage he totaled 2 pass break ups, 2 interceptions, and an elite QB rating when targetted of 19.1.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has the quick, agile feet and fluid hips to mirror quickness and change direction underneath. But he’s at his best facing the action.
  • Physical run supporter in the Antoine Winfield mold with short-area explosiveness to leave his mark on ballcarriers.
  • Willing in run support, coming downhill quickly when Young has a chance to make a play.
  • At his best coming downfield and attacking, taking good angles and delivering monster hits.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Despite his size, he’s not an overly physical tackler. Young might have to add some weight at the next level in order to become more physical.
  • He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Young is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.
  • Has good but not great recovery speed when working downfield, where Young has trouble making plays on the ball.
  • Isn’t great in route recognition when he’s facing the action, is hesitant and susceptible to double moves, and too often gets unnecessarily handsy when playing trail position
