The 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior guard led the Wildcats to a 27-0 season and their second straight Class A Division I state championship. He averaged 15.5 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals on the season and surpassed 2,000 career points on his way to becoming the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,039 points.
Yearout has maintained a 3.78 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball on scholarship at the University of Idaho this fall.
The first player to sign with a Division I college program directly out of Lapwai High, Yearout has volunteered locally at a Christmas toy, coat and food drive. He also has donated his time assisting the elderly, and he and his family donate clothing and gifts to the Tiny Tots Learning Center at the Lapwai Boys & Girls Club.
