Vince Young just added another honor to his already impressive college career. The former Texas Longhorn was inducted into the SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame.

Young was a unanimous selection among the five-member committee. He is the first player to be elected in into the SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame.

Barking Carinval made the following case when it nominated Young:

30-2 record as starter. 2005 Manning, Davey O'Brien, Maxwell Awards. #2 in Heisman Trophy voting (and it was bullllllshit). Arguably the greatest big game QB in NCAA history. 2 Time Rose Bowl MVP (only non Pac 10/Big 10 player to hold distinction). 1st QB to ever pass for 3000+ yards and rush for 1000+ yards in a single season. #10 on ESPN's list of Greatest College Football Players Of All Time. #1 in NCAA Passing Efficiency in 2005. Passed for 6040 yards and rushed for 3127 in college career, totaling 81 TDS passing/receiving. Finished with insane 6.8 yards per carry career rushing average - best in Big 12 history among QBs/RBs.

The entire class will be revealed on Monday and Tuesday.

The SB Nation College Football Hall of Fame is a summer project involving all of the network's excellent college football blogs. Each community nominated five of its own for inclusion, with 10 of those nominees being inducted by our selection committee, which included reps from most FBS conferences. The inaugural class' first 10 will be revealed Monday and Tuesday, while the remaining 10 will be chosen by public vote Wednesday and Thursday.
