Offers adding up for Yulee
Since then the Irish have remained in contact through the mail.
“I haven’t heard from them in a minute,” Yulee said of the Irish. “It’s been a couple of months but I still get letters from them.”
North Carolina, Clemson, Michigan, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech also have offered and Florida State and a handful of other top programs have shown interest.
“Everything is going well,” Yulee said. “I’ve been getting a lot of letters and a lot of calls. It’s going well right now.”
Yulee lost track of how many scholarship offers he has collected but that number is nearing two dozen.
It could grow in a hurry once coaches hit the road for the spring evaluation period.
Yulee also plans to see a few schools once his junior basketball season comes to a close.
“I plan on visiting a lot of schools this summer,” he said. “I plan on going to Ohio State, Florida State, UNC, NC State, Virginia Tech, UVA and Clemson. I plan to go to some Nike camps and some Under Armour camps too.”
During the season Yulee visited North Carolina because of its proximity to his home.
As a junior, Yulee recorded 120 tackles, including 25 for a loss, and nine sacks in leading Indian River to an 8-4 record, the school’s first winning season in five years. Yulee also picked off three passes and returned two of them for scores.
He was named the PenSouth Conference’s Co-Defensive Player of the Year and a first team Junior All-American by MaxPreps.
While North Carolina is rumored to be the frontrunner for Yulee’s services, the four-star prospect claims to be open to all schools that offer.
“Not really,” he said when asked if he has any favorite schools. “I’m just enjoying it all right now.”
