We knew good news was coming, but this Yahtzee is extra special. Russ Yeast, son of UK legend Craig Yeast, just committed to Kentucky. The 2017 three-star athlete from Fremont, Ohio had offers from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Maryland, Washington State, and others, but decided to follow in his father’s footsteps at Kentucky.
Russ is considered the 33rd best wide receiver in the 2017 class and the 11th best player from the state of Ohio by 247 Sports, making him a huge, huge get for Mark Stoops and staff. He’s considered a four-star prospect by ESPN.
Here’s his tweet announcing his commitment:
