Tight end Jack Yary out of Murrieta Valley is considered one of the the top tight ends in the 2020 class and has already received five scholarship offers.

Yary could be following in his father’s footsteps after receiving a scholarship offer from USC. His father, Ron Yary, was a former All-American lineman for the Trojans and was inducted into the Hall of Fame after his career with the Minnesota Vikings.

The football genes clearly run deep in the family. At 6’5, 235 lbs this high school sophomore has all the tools needed for success. After impressing at the USC Elite Camp, he received the offer to play for his father’s alma mater.

What’s most impressive about Yary is his combination of size and athleticism. He has the potential to become a defense’s worst nightmare. He’s too big for defensive backs and too fast for linebackers.

Yary is already dominant as a blocker but it will be interesting to see if he can develop his raw potential as a pass catcher. There is also the possibility that he continues to bulk up and makes the transition to lineman like his father.

Helton saw Yary’s talent and wasted no time before giving him an offer. Locking down a talented player with family ties to the program is always a win. He is definitely a name to keep an eye on heading into his junior season.
