Four-star tight end Jack Yary will not enroll with USC football, per reports.
The relationship between USC football and the Yary family has been long and fruitful. But the one between the Trojans and tight end Jack Yary is ending before it really began.
The four-star product from the class of 2020 may not enroll at USC after all.
On Thursday, Yary posted an Instagram story with him in a Washington uniform. Shotgun Spratling of USCFootball.com went on to confirm that the tight end hasn’t been at USC’s voluntary workouts and isn’t expected to join the team.
The news about Yary comes on the heels of redshirt senior tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe entering the transfer portal.
USC football tight end depth will be hurt by the loss of Jack Yary.
Yary, the son of legendary Trojan lineman Ron Yary, was ranked No. 362 in the 247Sports composite, 10th among tight end and 31st in California. He was one of just four Top 400 recruits signed by the Trojans in what was the lowest-ranked class in USC history.
He committed to USC originally in the spring of 2019 only to decommit in mid-November. After considering UCLA, Washington and Arizona State, he ultimately decided to recommit to the Trojans just before Signing Day.
Despite signing a National Letter of Intent, Yary is now not part of USC’s plans going forward. As for his reasons for leaving, there are many potential explanations, from eligibility to the Trojans’ use of the position.
His loss would be less of a concern if the Trojans hadn’t also seen Imatorbhebhe opt to transfer away.
Depth at tight end doesn’t need to be great given USC’s Air Raid attack, but the unit will be thinner than expected. Starter Erik Krommenhoek returns along with a more dynamic receiving option in Josh Falo. They’ll be supported by redshirt freshmen Jude Wolfe and Ethan Rae, both of whom redshirted in 2019.

The greater concern is for 2021. Krommehoek and Falo will both graduate after the 2020 season. That will leave Wolfe and Rae alone to carry on the position. They’ll welcome three-star 2021 prospect Lake McRee to the fold. More tight ends could be pursued in the class of 2021 to fill the gap.
