Former Oklahoma WR KJ Young Expected to Transfer to UW


Young (6-1, 185) was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school in the class of 2013. He originally signed with the Sooners and saw playing time as a redshirt freshman in 2014 racking up 215 receiving yards and 1 touchdown on 19 receptions. Young was dismissed from Oklahoma in May of 2015 for a violation of team rules. He spent last season at Riverside Community College where he caught 40 passes for 421 yards and 6 touchdowns. Scott Eklund mentioned that the transfer is all but done and they are just waiting on UW to evaluate his transcripts. Young brings some much needed depth and experience to Washington's receiving corps, especially after the loss of Isaiah Renfro earlier this summer. Young has 2 years of eligibility left and he'll be able to play immediately.
