Yeargin surprised Notre Dame fans back in November with a visit to Clemson. Now, it looks like his feeling for the Tigers proved too strong.
Irish Sports Daily has confirmed that LB Richard Yeargin has decommited from #NotreDame— Irish Sports Daily (@ISDUpdate) January 25, 2014
Tough break for Notre Dame but one that wasn't completely unexpected. On a night when the Irish picked up a much needed pledge from a more important position of defensive tackle Yeargin's departure doesn't feel so bad.
He has been very interested in Clemson and for his sake let's hope they have room for him this close to National Signing Day.
Yeargin would have been a fun player to watch at Notre Dame. I talked about in the Reviewing the Redshirts series of Doug Randolph that Yeargin might be someone who could come in and quickly move up the depth chart behind Jaylon Smith at outside linebacker.
Alas, it was not meant to be.
