FROM GROSS-MATOS' HEAD COACH BOB OLIVER
"Yetur has three qualities that make him an impact player at the college level: football IQ, size and speed. In high school, Yetur dominated defensive line play at three positions, nose tackle, tackle and defensive end. He also stood up at linebacker and set sack records his senior year. Most importantly, he is a quality young man off the field and will represent his family and university accordingly."
