Chase Young Wonderlic Score
Young will take the Wonderlic as a part of the NFL Combine process in February. Once the score is released, we will post it here.
What is the Wonderlic?
The Wonderlic test has been a component of the NFL Scouting Combine for over 40 years. The test was originally used by legendary Cowboys coach Tom Landry as part of their player evaluation and was eventually adopted around the league. While there is still plenty of debate about the value of the Wonderlic, it still seems to make the headlines each year around the Combine and NFL Draft.
About Chase Young
Young hails from Upper Marlboro, Maryland and graduated from DeMatha Catholic High School. The junior won several defensive player of the year awards this past season, including the Ted Hendricks Award, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Chuck Bednarik Award. However, his 2019 campaign was shortened due to a 2 game suspension from an NCAA violation. In 2018, Young had 25 solo tackles, 10 1/2 sacks and forced 1 fumble, despite spraining both ankles. Young helped lead one of the most dominant defenses in the Big Ten Conference and a 2019 berth into the College Football Playoff before falling to Clemson.
