Yeargin III helps Irish on field, in recruiting

Notre Dame picked up a commitment from four-star outside linebacker Richard Yeargin III (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School of Nova South) on Friday night, and the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder is a significant get for the Fighting Irish on and off the field.

Not only will the versatile playmaker fit in Notre Dame's defense, but he helps the Irish establish a strong recruiting presence in Florida.
