Kentucky Commits to Visiting Ohio State

Russ Yeast, an athlete from Fremont Ross Ohio, is a 3-star prospect who is committed to Ky. He's having a great run out of the gate in this junior season. He made a visit to Ohio State this past Saturday.

Even though he's committed to Kentucky, he went to watch Ohio State and saw them beat Hawaii by a score of 38 to 0. Yeast is 5' 11" tall and weights 175 pounds. He pledged himself to the Ky Wildcats near the end of July and expects to follow in his father's footsteps (Craig Yeast), who was also a Kentucky star.

Yeast himself stated that "Even though I went to see Ohio State on Saturday, I am still committed to Kentucky 100%. I saw some great stuff and had a lot of fun. Tim Hinton (the coach) asked me last Tuesday if I would visit and I agreed. It was a really good experience."

Luke Farrell Commits To Ohio State

Luke Farrell

The Buckeyes are going to have another four-start prospect in 2016, and that prospect is none other than Luke Farrell.

In the past it looked inevitable, and apparently it was because it is now official, Farrell is a Buckeye. Farrell committed to Ohio State at Ohio Stadium, at its Friday Night Lights camp. The player did have other offers, which included Wisconsin, Duke and Nebraska.

As for where Farrell ranks, he ranks as the 7th tight end in the country, as well as the 158th overall prospect, and this means that Ohio State has three of the top 15 tight ends in the nation. Some of the top prospects that have committed also include Jake Hausmann and Kierre Hawkins. Hawkins spoke about Farrell, saying that the school views Farrell as a Noah Brown-style 'H' and that sentiment was referenced back when Farrell spoke about Ohio State in June.
