At 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, Yarbrough plays left tackle at Woodberry Forest High in Virginia. His team lost just one game in 2014 so he comes from one of the better programs in that state.
Yarbrough was first recruited by Miami last spring and he even took an unofficial visit to the school last summer. The Canes continued recruiting him since then and decided to make the offer this morning.
Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Michigan, LSU, and Penn State were some of his previous offers so it's interesting that Miami waited so long before deciding to pull the offer trigger. He's being recruited like one of the top overall prospects in the state of Virginia, and one of the top offensive line prospects in the East.
"I loved how there's such a focus on academics, because we had a chance to sit down with some of the women that work with football players that are in the business program," Yarbrough told CanesTime about his visit to Miami from before. "That's something I'm very interested in and the fact that half of the team is in the business program was really impressive to me."
Since then he's taken visits to over a dozen other programs, which makes it tough to tell which schools he really likes the most. Especially considering he had a decision date (May 21) set before getting offered by Miami, the Canes are likely on the outside looking in with this one.
Despite having a big 2016 recruiting class, the Canes are still seeking their first offensive line commitment for that class.
