"I have a great relationship with Coach Coley," remarked Yearby. "We talk very often. We talk about what we are going to do the next couple of years. About trying to win a couple of championships and bring it back."
The four-star athlete visited USF in July and the Bulls could be a factor down the road. He is close with USF running backs coach Telly Lockette. Lockette won two state titles at Central and coached Yearby for three seasons.
"I haven't really decided where I'm going to go [on visits], but I will go see Coach Lockette and USF for an official," Yearby said.
In addition to USF he said he will "probably" visit Florida and USC. His message for the other schools is to keep recruiting him hard and don't give up on him.
Despite the recent movement, it appears the 'Canes are still in good shape.
"It's all about The U," Yearby said.
Last season, he rushed for 1,448 yards on 212 carries and 20 touchdowns while leading his team to a Class 6A state championship.
