"That is the place I want to be," said Yates. "I got a chance to go around and meet the players, the coaches, and all of their families this weekend and it was great. I have been up there for almost every game this year and that is where I want to be for college."
Yates has cancelled his trip to Kansas next weekend and will not take anymore trips. CU has still not offered him in writing, but Yates knows the staff is good for it.
His family is also excited about the commitment. "They are really happy for me. The coaches tell me I have a huge opportunity to start next year and that a spot is there for the taking. I want to be at a playing weight of around 200 or 210."
Yates also made first team all-league. He played little league with fellow commit Maurice Lucas so there will be some familiar faces coming in with him.
He took his ACT again last Friday and feels he did very well on it and should have no trouble passing the time.
