Nick Bosa reveals Chase Young call-up after 49ers-Commanders trade – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

Nick Bosa reveals Chase Young call-up after 49ers-Commanders trade – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

After five years of dominating the field together at Ohio State, Nick Boza and Chase Young are teammates again.

This time, he’s in the NFL with the 49ers.

San Francisco acquired the defensive end from the Washington Commanders for a special compensatory draft pick at the NFL trade deadline last week. A few moments after learning of the move, Bosa immediately called his old friend.

“George [Kittle] He called me and told me and then I FaceTimed [Young] “Immediately,” Bosa revealed to reporters on Thursday. “I was here. It was shocking, honestly. We never expected to play together. It’s a little weird seeing him walking around this building.”

Young referred to Bosa as a big brother from a dominant Buckeyes team, and he’s excited to join the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

In 2017 at Ohio State, Bosa recorded 16.0 sacks, while Young had 3.5 as a sophomore. The following season, Young recorded 10.5 sacks, but Bosa’s season ended after just three games due to a groin injury.

Bosa was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 draft. Young was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 draft, which Washington selected. While the two players went their separate ways, they stayed in touch as much as possible.

“We’ve stayed in touch, but obviously we’re doing our own thing,” Bosa said. “But we were really close at Ohio State and it’s good to have him back.”

Bosa’s favorite memory with Young at Ohio State?

“I think the year my hip injury ended early,” Bosa said. “We were dominating together and it was a lot of fun.”
