Mark Stoops is Still Recruiting Russ Yeast



Mark Stoops may have lost the battle, but he’s determined to win the war.

Russ Yeast, the 4-star athlete and son of former UK great Craig Yeast, pledged his allegiance to the blue and white early in the recruiting process, but decided to re-open his recruitment last June.  Four months later, Yeast decided it was in his best interest to become a Card.  Mark Stoops hasn’t quit fighting.

The Under Armour All-American was offered by Notre Dame and Stoops’ brother Bob this week.  Yeast revealed he also received in-home visits from UofL and Notre Dame yesterday.  Mark Stoops has a 33 percent chance of flipping Yeast back to Kentucky according to the 247 Crystal Ball.

If Yeast flips, this is what you’ll see at Kentucky.

    He was my water boy in high school when Craig coached at Washington County in 2010. Who would have known he’d be an Under Armor All-American? Unreal. I hope Stoops brings him back to the good side.

    I don’t get how he wants to go to UL. His dad was a C-A-T, not saying he has to follow in his footsteps but he should not go to a hated rival. Any other school I would say, hey the kid wants to make a name for himself and not be that guys son at UK. But not to a rival that his dad should have hatred for as well.

    not saying it’s going to happen. but how sweet would it be if he’s just playing the cards and signs with us on feb 1. that would just throw fire on an already blazing flame of a rivalry. he would instantly be loved by the cats and louisville fans everywhere would be all “he ain’t that good anyway”

    Really hoping this happens. His old man was one of the all-time UK greats, so he definitely has that going for him. However, I totally get wanting to do your own thing as a young man; I was that way myself, to a fault.
