VFL Tiger Tylar Young recruited in rookie draft

Richmond has used its second selection in the 2022 rookie draft (No. 26 overall) to recruit Richmond VFL key defender Tylar Young.

Recruited from: Richmond VFL
Position: Key defender
Height: 196cm
Weight: 92kg
DOB: 5/9/1998


What the Richmond recruiters say about Young...

"Hailing from Albury, Tylar played high level soccer until his late teens before switching to football with North Albury FC in 2019. He went on to play 14 senior games before deciding to head to Melbourne to play two seasons in the VFL with Frankston.

"In 2022 Tylar joined the Richmond VFL program where he showed terrific improvement throughout the season.

"Predominantly playing as a key defender, he showed an ability to blanket a variety of opponents while also developing his intercept game."

Everyone likes a tall!

Does he have any forward potential?

Does Gibcus instead?

Just a bit fun here. Why would we not take Ethan Phillips here if it was a key defender we wanted.His body of work was way in front of any tall defender playing vfl last year.

198CM PLAYER #1 in the comp for marks per game #1 for intercept possesions vfl team of the year etc just 23 as well.
Are we still taking best available or not.

Yeah but was he best available?? No way in the world. Youngs season was no where near Phillips.
Not that we desperately needed another key defender anyway.
No key forwards developing and only Jack Ross as a big mid in the two's.

It was pretty simple really, get a performing state league kpf like Kietel who kicked 70 goals in the wafl in 2021 or take a punt on an athletically gifted one like bradtke. Instead we could not look outside our own back door to take a type we don't really need who is not best available anyway
Just the other side of the coin here.

Probably for the same reasons none of the other 17 clubs took him

With respect Claw, in your view (based on numbers I suspect) Phillips had a better season and was best available. But our recruiters and indeed our coaches would have seen Young every week, clearly liked what they saw and preferred him over Phillips. He meets what they were after.

Who knows (we certainly don't all we can do is suppose) maybe they intend to switch him up forward and develop him. Perhaps they are going to look at switching Biggy or go with Miller as I said who knows.

We will know soon enough and if it doesn't work out then we can all sit back and say "told ya so".

But let's give all our recruits and chance, you never know they may all surprise.

Jack Graham will be a big body mid in the 2s next year now

Young promotion delights Morris
Richmond’s VFL coach Steven Morris has provided an insight into mature-age recruit Tylar Young.

By Tony Greenberg, Richmond Media - 12 hrs ago

Richmond’s VFL coach Steven Morris has provided an insight into the Club’s mature-age recruit Tylar Young.

“Youngy’s a great kid.

“We were lucky enough to put him on our list from Frankston a couple of years ago and we’ve done our best to, hopefully, help him build upon those foundations, and I think he’s grown his game over the last 12 months. 

“He’s just so keen to grow and learn as a footy player.

“I think he’ll be one of those players that thrives in an AFL environment.

“We’re lucky enough to have some really experienced defenders at AFL level in “Grimesy” (Dylan Grimes) and “Taz” (Robbie Tarrant), and Noah Balta’s been around for a little while now.

“So, I’m super-excited for him.

“I’m really proud of the work that he’s put in.

“It’s just great for our program moving forward.”

Your kidding arent ya. Jack maybe solidly built but at just 181cm and 82kg he can hardly be decribed as a big mid.
