Yeargin has received offers from the Arkansas Razorbacks, Clemson Tigers, Florida Gators, Florida State Seminoles, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Marshall Thundering Herd, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Tennessee Volunteers, UCLA Bruins, Boston College Eagles, Bowling Green Falcons, Duke Blue Devils, Hawaii Warriors, Illinois Fighting Illini, Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, Massachusetts Minutemen, Mississippi State Bulldogs, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Nebraska Cornhuskers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Northwestern Wildcats, Ole Miss Rebels, Pittsburgh Panthers, Purdue Boilermakers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, South Carolina Gamecocks, Stanford Cardinal, Syracuse Orange, Central Florida Knights, Vanderbilt Commodores, Virginia Cavaliers, Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Washington State Cougars, and West Virginia Mountaineers.

Out of all his offers, it seems he is most interested in Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Marshall, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and UCLA.

Yeargin’s best skills have to be his frame, pursuit of the football, and his reactive quickness. Overall, he is a well-rounded linebacker, but could also play defensive end.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 34th in the state of Florida and 28th among outside linebackers by 247Sports.
