Yates, an Oak Park (IL) standout, could “maybe” commit shortly after the offer. Yates’ brother, father and grandfather all attended NU.
“It’s in our blood,” Yates told PurpleWildcats.com in April.
Yates threw well in front of offensive coordinator Mick McCall in early May, and McCall clearly considers him good enough for the Wildcats. Yates was specifically offered as a QB/ATH — given his ability at slot receiver.
Yates told PurpleWildcats.com that he had yet to tell his parents about the offer upon tweeting it. When he does, expect long deliberation about an early commitment.
Yates waited a while for the offer, but might not take long for the commitment.
