Maybe CWT and Lockette can flip him again?

2/26/13 New OC Coley flips '14 star RB Yearby from FSU to UM

Joseph Yearby, a 5-9, 190-pound All-State running back from state champion Miami Central, switched his non-binding oral commitment from Florida State to the University of Miami Miami on Tuesday, adding his name to what is becoming a stellar 2014 recruiting class for the Hurricanes.

Yearby, a Seminoles commitment since May 2012, said he flipped to the Canes because of his connection to former Florida State offensive coordinator James Coley, who took over the same title at Miami last month.

 

Ranked as a four-star prospect by 247Sports.com and ranked the 66th best player in the country in the 2014 class, Yearby ran for 2,160 yards and 24 touchdowns as a sophomore. He followed it up by rushing for 1,448 yards and 20 TDs in leading the Rockets to the state title in December.

 

Miami Central coach Telly Lockette, interviewed by Miami for its vacant running backs job earlier this month before the team promoted Hurlie Brown to the position, was surprised to learn of the news Tuesday. He said he's up in Oregon for a coaching convention.

"I was surprised to hear it," Lockette said. "Obviously we all know what a great kid and what a great talent Joe is."

Soft commit to UM. 4/5* on pay sites. Can go where he wants, but Telly is working on him. Don't believe FSU rumors.. He has mad skills, great vision and cuts, breakaway speed and power inside. This would be a game changer. No 3-7 RB in country. Film is fun to watch. Get him Coach Lockette.

Why would we want him to flip to USF?  Any player that flips is clearly a useless player bound to failure.  At least, that's what I have learned here on the TBP.

Got a feeling this won't happen for a while with one flip under his belt already. Lockette hadn't left yet when he committed last time though, jussayin

This has to be a long shot...but it'd be a HUGE pick up. The sales pitch could be "go to UM, sit behind Duke Johnson for 2 years, then hopefully get to play".

 

Of course, Duke could go pro after his junior year, and barring injury, likely will...but it's still a good pitch.  We'll see if Lockette can pull him.

Telly was retweeting JY tweets tonight. This may be heating up. Supposedly Telly and Joseph were really close. This would be the perfect position for him with Telly as RB coach. PERFECT!!!!

Should Telly be retweeting prospect tweets?

I'll let Telly worry about that. Besides what kind of violation would it be or what kind of damage could it cause?
