Former UK football commitment Russ Yeast landed a scholarship offer from Alabama during a recruiting visit to the Southeastern Conference powerhouse Saturday.
Yeast — a three-star athlete in the class of 2017 — backed out of his commitment to the Wildcats last month after being committed for nearly a year. He is the son of former UK star Craig Yeast.
A few days ago, Yeast released a list of his final six schools: Auburn, Illinois, Iowa, Louisville, Mississippi and Northwestern. UK was notably absent from that group, and Alabama likely will now be in the mix if the Tide continue to recruit him seriously.
Yeast also visited Ole Miss this weekend.
