Bearcat Insider: How did your visit go?
Yager: "I thought it went well, I really enjoyed my weekend I spent with the coaches and getting to know them a little better."
Bearcat Insider: Why did you decide to further your football and education career at the University of Cincinnati?
Yager: "Really it was just Coach Tuberville, I think he is the kind of guy I can get behind and I just agree with his mentality. He's a point A to point B kind of guy and I really feel like I am going to flourish in that kind of environment. I really like the academic structure and the way they treat their athletes."
Bearcat Insider: When will you officially move to campus?
Yager: "I am a December transfer from Iowa Western Community College, so I will be there in January and I am really excited!"
Bearcat Insider: What other schools offered you?
Yager: "I had quite a few offers, Texas Tech offered me a blue shirt and I turned them down obviously. Other than that I had East Carliona University, University of Cincinnati, University of Louisina Monroe, and I'm sure I'll get more, but I am committed to Cincinnati. Like I said, it's close to home and I really like Tuberville."
Bearcat Insider: What did it mean to you to receive an offer from Cincinnati?
Yager: "It really just shows me that there are other people that believe in me. Out of high school I was signed to play at Ball State University and academically things just didn't work out so I had to go to a junior college. A lot of people told me that I wasn't going to make it, so obviously having all these schools call me and saying that they need me at their schools and that I can make a difference there helps me build a little more confidence in my ability to play and really shows that God is blessing me right now."
Bearcat Insider: How is your season going at Iowa Western right now?
Yager: "It could be doing a lot better, we should be number one in the country but it came down to the three games that we have lost. Just mental mistakes, we'll have a game where the offensive line is playing great but it just isn't all meshing together. We're 2-3 right now, we've beaten pretty good teams but we've lost to some pretty good teams as well."
Bearcat Insider: Do you plan on making any more visits to Cincinnati before you officially move here?
Yager: "I'll probably take all of my visits just to see what it's like. I've talked to the coaches and some people from the Cincinnati staff and they're all confident, I just want to test the waters."
Bearcat Insider: Have you watched the Netflix original Last Chance U about the guys playing at a junior college?
Yager: "Yes I watched it, it was a good show!"
