The above video features video clips of Scout 300 four-star quarterback Colson Yankoff from Coeur D'Alene (Idaho) High School at this past weekend's The Opening New Orleans regional camp.
Only a few days after the event, Yankoff announced his commitment to Washington, which he chose over offers from across the country, including California, Duke, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Oregon, Stanford, TCU, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Utah, Washington State, and others.
At The Opening New Orleans, Yankoff measured 6-foot-3 1/2, 200 pounds and tested exceptionally. He ran a laser-timed 4.74 40 and an impressive shuttle of 4.16. Yankoff also recorded a vertical of 38.1 inches and finished with Nike Football Rating of 114.93, which placed fourth overall regardless of position.
In addition to his testing prowess, Yankoff threw consistently and fluidly. He shows a smooth, easy release, but also applies the proper velocity to his passes as needed. Yankoff proved a good touch passer to multiple levels, whether lobbing a ball downfield outside the numbers, or dumping off a pass to a back on a half-skeleton drill checkdown.
Scout ranks Yankoff as the No. 6 quarterback in the West Region and the No. 15 QB nationally for the 2018 class. He's also the No. 151 overall prospect in the Scout 300.
For his performance in New Orleans, Yankoff earned a spot on Scout's top offensive performers list, as seen the link below:
