Still a teenager, Young joined the Knights' first-grade squad from Huddersfield at the commencement of the 2021 pre-season as part of the top 30.
A centre or winger who stands at a towering 198 centimetres, Young made his Super League debut for the Giants at the age of 17 last season.
Turning 19 in 2020, the 106-kilo back is athletically built with a distinct height advantage.
The towering Englishman is contracted until at least the end of the 2023 season.
