Carter Young's trajectory has been on the up over the last 12 months. He took fourth at 61kg at Junior Nationals in November of 2020. Young then finished as a runner-up at 61kg at the Junior World Team Trials in  May of 2021. 

Making the world team in a stacked 61kg bracket just last week suggests that Young has yet to hit the peak of his potential. 

Young was a top 100 prospect with strong accolades including a seventh-place finish in the Fargo 126-pounds Junior Fargo bracket in 2019. Carter made his initial commitment to Northwestern in June of 2020.

Young projects as a 133 or 141-pounder and could see himself in the lineup next to new teammate Daton Fix who will be representing the USA at the Oslo World Championships at 61kg.
