Three-star tight end/offensive tackle/defensive end Will Yeatman (6-6, 255, 4.85) from San Diego (Calif.) Rancho Bernardo has taken two visits, has set two more visits and just picked up a brand new offer. The versatile and athletic Yeatman brings a lot to the table. Not only is he an outstanding football player but he's one of the nation's best lacrosse prospects.
Yeatman has already taken official visits to Notre Dame and Nebraska.
"I took an official visit to Notre Dame back in September and it went real well," Yeatman said. "I liked the history, the athletics, the game and the people, they were great. I liked everything about Notre Dame."
"Nebraska is really nice," Yeatman said. "I liked the coaching staff and the game was absolutely amazing. The only negative of the Nebraska trip was that I didn't get a chance to see the whole campus."
Yeatman will take his next visit this coming weekend (November 11th) when he visits North Carolina. He will follow up that visit with a trip to Maryland (November 18th).
Arizona State looks to be in line for the fifth and final visit. Yeatman is also interested in the two Los Angeles Pac 10 schools. As a matter of fact, he took in the USC/Stanford game this past weekend and his brother is a student at USC.
Yeatman just received an offer last week from UCLA and every school except UCLA and USC are looking at him as a tight end, both Los Angeles schools like him as a tackle.
"I always wanted to try tight end and see how I do," Yeatman said. "If a school wants me to be a tackle then I will try to what they want me to do."
Will the two Los Angeles schools get an official visit?
"I don't want to take an official visit to a school that I can drive to," Yeatman said. "I want to use my official visits for schools that I have to fly to get to."
What about lacrosse?
"I love lacrosse and always thought that I would play it on the collegiate level," Yeatman said. "But if I visit a school that doesn't have it and I love that school and everything else about it, I will go there."
Yeatman has helped his team to an 8-1 record for the season of 2005. On offense he has 29 receptions for 431 yards and seven touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Yeatman has approximately 40 tackles, five sacks and one interception.
Rivals.com ranks Yeatman as the nation's No. 40 offensive tackle prospect for the class of 2006. He also made Rivals.com preseason California Top 100 team and landed as the Golden State's No. 79 prospect at any position.
