Four-star athlete Russ Yeast made an official visit with Louisville this past weekend

Scout.com four-star athlete Russ Yeast is the latest to commit to Louisville

After spending the weekend in Louisville on an official visit, Greenwood (Ind.) Center Grove two-way athlete Russ Yeast has made the decision on his college destination.

Yeast, a Scout.com four-star prospect, committed to the Cardinals program on Monday.  In doing so, he becomes the second consecutive member of the Scout 300 to pledge to U of L, joining running back Colin Wilson to announced his college intentions last week.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound athlete has displayed the ability to shine at multiple positions on the college level.  His Scout analysis states points out that Yeast has the skill to excel at receiver, quarterback and defensive back.

"Polished as a route-runner on the offensive side of the ball, but has also been asked to play some quarterback and has shown elusiveness as a wildcat," it reads. "Has played defensive back and used his athleticism there, but is further along on the offensive side of the ball."

Yeast is expected to play cornerback at Louisville.

The latest to commit to Louisville, Yeast was at one point a Kentucky commitment and is the son of former Wildcat star Craig Yeast.  Additionally, he made an official visit with Auburn in September and also strongly considered scholarship offers from Alabama and Iowa before choosing the Cardinals.  Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi and Washington State are among the others to offer Yeast.

Yeast checks in at No. 271 overall prospect in the recently updated Scout 300 and is among the top 25 athlete prospects nationally.
