Russ Yeast looked really good this weekend

Russ Yeast, son of UK legend Craig Yeast and current 2017 commit, turned in quite the performance Friday night. Yeast played quarterback for Fremont Ross (Ohio) in the team’s final scrimmage before the regular season, and turned in touchdown runs of 89 and 74 yards.

The highlights are impressive to say the least:

His dad left pretty big cleats to fill, but if those highlights are any indication, Russ is capable.

    I got so miffed when 247 knocked him down from a 4-star to a 3-star after his UK commitment. I know it doesn’t change anything in reality, but what a BS slap in the face to the kid and the program. It’s like the Alabama effect, in reverse.

      I think 247 is the only recruiting site that had any of UK’s 2017 commits ranked 4 stars. Not a troll — recruiting has improved leaps and bounds at U— but I didn’t understand all the “program changing” talk when the four 2017 kids committed to UK at the end of July. Rivals has all at 3 stars, so does Scout I believe. Nice pickups, but not like a huge recruiting leap forward. To be fair, if the 2016 class of commits stays together, then that is the best class ever at UK IMO.
