The hits keep on coming for Kentucky on the recruiting trail. This time, Kentucky lost a commitment from a legacy athlete.
Three-star cornerback/wide receiver Craig Yeast II announced on Thursday he had decommitted from Kentucky. Yeast’s father was a star wide receiver for Kentucky from 1995-98. The younger Yeast revealed his decision on Twitter.

The Greenwood, Ind., native is rated as the No. 37 cornerback nationally in the Class of 2017 and the No. 18 player in the state of Indiana. He has received 16 reported scholarship offers, including an offer from Ole Miss.
Yeast’s decision comes shortly after four-star quarterback Mac Jones flipped his commitment from Kentucky to SEC rival Alabama. Mark Stoops’ 2017 class is now down to nine commitments and has fallen to No. 38 in the country and No. 11 in the SEC.
