USC is no stranger to the Yary name. Jack Yary is the son of Trojan and overall football great Ron Yary. A two-time All-American offensive lineman at USC in 1966 and 1967, Ron went on to a decorated pro career, establishing himself as one of the greatest football players who have ever lived. He is a College Football and Pro Football Hall of Famer, and a member of the Pac-12 All-Century Team.

Ron’s brother, Wayne, also played for the Trojans from 1969 to 1970.

Jack Yary isn’t an offensive lineman, but he certainly boasts great size. He stands 6-foot-6, 250 pounds coming out of Murrieta Valley High School.

He ranks 18th among tight ends in the class of 2020 and 670th nationally, per the 247Sports composite.

In 2019, he had 33 receptions for 386 yards and six touchdowns in nine games of action. He also played defensive end with 21 tackles, 2.5 sacks and five quarterback hurries.

The Trojans added a pair of highly-rated tight ends in the class of 2019—Jude Wolfe and Ethan Rae—but the unit still needs of reinforcements. Though Josh Falo and Erik Krommenhoek are expected to lead the group this coming season, both are juniors and the clocks on their remaining eligibility are certainly ticking.

Even as USC transitions to the Air Raid offense under Graham Harrell, Clay Helton and his coaching staff have made it clear that the tight end will still have a large role to play in the new offensive scheme.

Yary is the fourth commitment for USC’s 2020 haul. Five-star quarterback Bryce Young out of Mater Dei headlines the class along with four-star wide receiver Josh Jackson from Narbonne. Heralded kicker Parker Lewis, from Scottsdale, Arizona, is also on board.
