Russ Yeast, a four-star athlete, has made multiple unofficial visits at Louisville and will be back in town this weekend.

One of the newest members of the Scout 300 is making an official visit at Louisville this weekend.

Fresh off a five touchdown performance last weekend, Russ Yeast was elevated into the Scout 300 on Wednesday, checking in at No. 271 nationally. This weekend he'll experience the environment of a Louisville home game.

The Greenwood (Ind.)

In addition to Louisville, Yeast also holds a scholarship offer from Alabama, Auburn, Iowa, Nebraska, Mississippi and others.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Yeast projects as either a wide receiver or defensive back on the college level, is rated as the No. 23 overall athlete prospect nationally and third in the Midwest Region.
