4-star CB Russ Yeast Planning Iowa Visit in July

Iowa to get a return visit from four-star cornerback Russ Yeast of Indianapolis.

All the recruiting momentum is on Iowa's side right now, and with the caliber of targets remaining on their board, it could certainly continue for the rest of the cycle. Iowa landed four commitments between Sunday and Monday. That pace should slow but the level of athlete they're recruiting won't.

With another departure from the Hawkeye secondary, the defensive backfield will be a huge emphasis moving forward in the class. They've already landed cornerback Matt Hankins of Texas, defensive back Camron Harrell of Illinois, and safety Djimon Colbert of Kansas City but more will be needed.

He was originally committed to Kentucky but de-committed from the Wildcats a while ago. Yeast is now seriously considering five schools.

"My top schools are probably Ole Miss, Iowa, Louisville, Auburn and Northwestern in no particular order," he pointed out to Scout. "I haven't decided when I will make my college decision yet, though."

Yeast is ranked as the second best athlete in the midwest according to Scout's rankings and also has offers from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Maryland, Michigan, Rutgers and Washington State. 

The next step for him in the recruiting process is a few more visits.

"I think I will take some trips in July," Yeast said. "But I will also take a few officials. I'm going to try and make it to Louisville and Iowa in July but possibly a few other schools as well. I'd have to use an official visit with Auburn just because of time and travel."
