U.S. Army Combine: David Yancey

2013 Indiana running back David Yancey was one of hundreds that made the trek to San Antonio, Texas last week for the U.S. Army All-American Combine. Already holding two offers, Yancey is looking to add more. He caught up with Scout at the Alamodome to discuss past visits, upcoming ones, and which schools could be next to jump…

"I called Minnesota today, talked to Coach Phelps. I really like him, he's a great guy. and I really like their program," said Yancey, who currently carries offers from Wyoming and Butler.

"I've been hearing a lot from them (Minnesota). I've also been hearing a lot from Oregon, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Purdue. They all say they're close to offering."

Which is why all five's junior days will be penciled in on the running back's calendar this spring.

"It's crazy to think how much recruitment's really started to pick up for me."

The 5-foot-10, 200-pounder of Saint John (Ind.) Lake Central has already made trips to the University of Indiana, and to Vanderbilt.

He noted, "Vanderbilt really stood out. I like their coaching staff. They made it real personal. Came and shook our hands, made time to talk to us, made us feel like we were part of the Vanderbilt football team."

This is important to Yancey.

Feeling as part of a family is an item that certainly sits atop his visit checklist- among great academics, early playing time, top-notch facilities, and a strong Business-Sports Marketing program.

As for the Army Combine, Yancey was excited to be a part of it. "My dad was in the Army, so I've watched this bowl game every year," he said. "To come out here and compete with the best of the best is great. It's been an incredible experience."
