One of the top running backs in the West region next year will be San Francisco (Calif.) Sacred Heart standout Dasarte Yarnway. The talented athlete is being recruited nationally and should be picking up his first few offers shortly.
Yarnway, 6-0, 215 pounds has been one of the state's top backs since his sophomore year. He earned all-state underclass honors for the second year in a row this past season after rushing for 1,408 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Yarnway is a powerful running back with good speed. He's a downhill runner who has the ability to run between the tackles or bounce it outside.
On the recruiting front, Yarnway is still waiting for his first offer but is hearing from schools all over the country.
"Recruiting is really heating up," Yarnway said. "Schools are bugging my coach all the time. It's crazy, but definitely a dream come true. USC, Cal, and Northwestern all have recently made trips to our school.
"In addition to those schools, I'm getting mail from schools like Florida, Oregon, UCLA, Washington, Notre Dame, Florida State, Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, Colorado, Nebraska, Miami and a lot of others.
"I've heard Cal, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, USC and Notre Dame are all close to offering. I'm planning to go up to Cal next weekend, I'm taking an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech April May 5 and will also be attending the NIKE Camp at Stanford in May.
"This spring and summer, I plan on taking a lot of visits and if necessary attending college camps. I'm also getting my highlight tape out as well. As for when I'll commit, there is no set date but the team which has the best plan for me, and where I'm comfortable at the school will play a big factor in where I decide to go."
