Yarbrough has big Zero Week

Zero week in Colorado Prep football turned out to be a big one for the Grandview Wolves and their linebacker, Eddie Yarbrough. The Wolves took on and dispensed with a highly-ranked Valor Christian squad 28-19 featuring at least four NCAA DIvision I prospects.

"It felt like a homecoming out there for me," Yarbrough said. "I love playing under the lights, I love playing in front of my friends and family."

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Yarbrough was a 2009 All-State Honorable Mention selection, said he had one sack and several tackles while playing outside linebacker, middle linebacker and defensive end. Yarbrough said he has played all three positions since he took over a starting spot as a sophomore.

"I feel like I know the ins and outs of all three positions," he said.

Yarbrough holds scholarship offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State and Wyoming. He said he is also hearing from Boise State, Oregon, UCLA, Kansas State, Nebraska, Arizona and Arizona State currently.

"CU and CSU are really staying in contact with me," Yarbrough said. "CU is still looking at me a lot and so is CSU. They are keeping a close eye on me. I know for a fact CSU was at my game on Friday night. They are both definitely in the mix.

"I'll probably use all my visits out-of-state," Yarbrough added. "I can drive from here out to see CU and CSU."

Yarbrough is something of a legacy at Colorado State, as his uncle, Raymond Jackson played corner for the Rams in the mid-1990's.

For now, Yabrough said he plans on making his college decision closer to signing day.
