Clark Yarbrough is well into double-digit offers, with California the latest to pull the trigger. But the Woodberry Forest (Va.) offensive lineman took a moment to return to Charlottesville on Saturday-to the program that offered him first.
“It went really well,” said the four-star 2016 standout after his visit to Virginia. “I had a great time.”
Yarbrough is no stranger to the Cavalier program, however, the UVa legacy says this visit was different.
“ It was the first time I got to sit down with (offensive line) coach (Scott) Wachneheim one-on-one. We talked about my possible future and what that would entail.
“He left a great first impression. He just talked about how I would fit into their offense, and all the great things I would get out of going to UVa. It definitely gave me a lot to think about.”
Yarbrough also had an opportunity to talk to UVa head coach Mike London and reconnect with some friends at the cookout.
This visit was also about seeing the offensive line in action. Yarbrough, along with the other recruits, had the opportunity to observeVirginia’s third scrimmage.
“I think it went really well,” he stated. “You can tell they are all focused; they are all focused towards one goal. I am very excited just in a fan perspective to see how they are going to do.”
The 6-foot-6, 255 pounder liked what he saw from Wachenheim’s men in the trenches.
“They were very intense. I loved how they were finishing their blocks. It was very encouraging to see going into the season.”
“Through my visits they still remain very high on my list. I wouldn’t say anything has changed. I haven’t figured out any order, a top ten or anything. I have no top schools. I am just focused on getting to know schools better.”
One way prospects learn more about programs is to visit. This fall Yarbrough already has two visits planned.
