Russ Yeast Commits to Louisville

Craig Yeast’s son will not follow in his father’s footsteps to Kentucky.

A three-star wide receiver/defensive back, Russ Yeast committed to Kentucky in July of 2015.  Almost a year later in June, he decided his father’s alma mater was not meant for him.

“I just don’t feel like it is the best situation for me. Some people can’t see why because my parents played sports there and all but in the end I’m the one going to school,” Yeast told The Cats’ Pause.

“Nothing happened between me and the coaching staff that forced me to make my decision nor did any in my family force me to make that decision; unlike what some reporters and people may think. I just need to take some time to back off and fully evaluate some of these other programs and make a proper decision.”

Four months later, Yeast is a Louisville Cardinal.  Louisville was UK’s top competition while he was committed, and the Cardinals’ stock only grew stronger when the season started.  After taking an official visit to UofL this weekend, he had seen enough.

    Not really all that big of a loss……..he will likely play sparingly at UL, and would have at UK as well……

      Kat4Life – Thank you. Thank you very much for being the prototypical “We didn’t want him anyway” moron. Yes, clearly there’s no room on the UK defense that gives up points like a B12 team. So so so so dumb.

    I was hoping Lamar Thomas could have swung this one back in our favor. I considered it a big loss back in June when Yeast decommitted. Now that he has committed to UL, it is a bigger loss. Thomas should have been all over the recruitment of Yeast and not busy posting Snapshot pictures of himself with former Miami or UL players.

    Cant blame him for wanting to play in a major bowl game before he graduates.
    Welcome to The Ville, Russ.

      Why are you here? No self-respecting person would willing be a Louisville fan. Congrats, your football team is good but the institution is a national punchline.

      Just congratulating Russ. Why are you here? Shouldn’t you be attacking Craig on Twitter like the other D-bags? Stay classy.

      You calling people d-bugs is classy, well coming from a card fan i guess you do think it’s classy , the same way your coaches think cheating on their spouses is classy. Shut up.

      It’s a UK fan site. If uofl has those I’d recommend checking them out with the rest of the chinstrap beard-wearing crown royal-drinking crowd.

    Hell is a pitch black room with polka music blasting out from unseen speakers while someone with a fake ghetto accent is constantly shouting “The Ville…man. We fans of THE VILLE.”

    Daddy didn’t do something right in raising this guy. My son will grow up knowing that ANY D1 school is better than the unholy Dirty Birds, especially offers from other, bigger programs. I can’t fathom it from the son of the former UK great. I understand wanting to make his own legacy, but geez, do that at Auburn, or Iowa, or Mississippi, or Nebraska, or Alabama…

    Oh well good luck Kid. No big lose here, he’ll sit there like he would have at KY

    Good luck to the kid, i wish him well. What i don’t understand is how any parent could let their son play football or basketball at louisville. Both teams are dirty and the coaches are both slim but heck you could get a hooker for less of nothing.
