I had one similar, signed at 12yo with 55/55/55. At 16+ years old he was still only rated 69. I was patient and his last season + 2 weeks, he reached 100/100/100 just before turning 18.
Some only improve in their final year(s)..
this is exactly why I am holding onto my 15 year old striker rated only 44,
as I have noticed that if they are balanced they can shoot up many ratings in just 1 season, which is basically what happened with my newest promoted striker too, didn't max at 100/100/100 though but 97 rated is still banging
will be nice when I do get a maxed player though.
still have a 15 year old rated 84 and a 14 year old rated 78 though at the moment my 2 best in the academy, which I think will both hit 90+ and max out. but also have a a 61 rated 14 year old 44 rated 15 year old and 46 rated 14 year old which are balanced as well, so I still think they will gain many ratings in the last couple seasons. but I guess we wait and find out, at the worst I see a couple of 60s-80s and a couple 90s.
if they promote that is, but I think I will find some more decent youths this/next season.
also a 37 rated player aged 14, this guy might need 4 seasons but balanced enough to hit 80s/ maybe 90s.
