On Friday, four-star linebacker Richard Yeargin III decommitted from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Many believed that decision made the Clemson Tigers the leaders to land the 6-4, 225-pounder out of the University School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Unfortunately for Yeargin, his school may have give away Yeargin’s choice, potentially ruining his moment.

Even though his decision seems to be a terrible kept secret, Yeargin’s family maintains that he has not committed anywhere and has not made a final decision.
“I don’t know what he’s going to. We aren’t playing the hat game, that much I know,” Yeargin’s brother told Tigernet. “We take this seriously and we will try to let everyone know before National Signing Day. We don’t play the social media game. We don’t want to disrespect any program or play with anyone’s emotions. We know this is a serious matter at hand. We have been completely quiet on social media – Twitter, Facebook, Instagram – since he decommitted.”
