NCAA | Young begins his work with Rhome

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Texas QB Vince Young began his workouts under the watchful eye of Jerry Rhome Saturday, Feb. 18. On a cold, wet and windy Saturday morning at Rice Stadium, Rhome watched Young throw on the run and from the pocket for more than an hour. "I asked Vince if he wanted to throw with the wind," Rhome said, "but he said he wanted to throw against the wind, because he wanted to make it as tough as possible. This was a bad time to work out, but he accepted the challenge and toughed it out. That impressed me." Young threw a variety of passes to two receivers who are among his closest friends: TCU's Cory Rodgers and Idaho's D.J. Smith. Like Young, Rodgers and Smith are underclassmen who are entering the NFL Draft early. "I was very impressed with Vince and his receivers today, especially considering these conditions," Rhome said. "Vince is everything I thought he'd be. Rhome laughed when he was asked if he would try to change Young's unorthodox throwing motion.
