Tucker Yates, DT, Colstrip, Senior: Yates lacks height (he’s 6-foot) for his girth (280 pound), but he’s tough as hell and plays with a great motor. He’s a standout wrestler and he’s strong as an ox.
Yates has been an all-state selection on both sides of the ball. He’s a punishing hitter who plays with reckless abandon.
One sportswriter said, despite his perceived lack of athleticism, he expects both Montana and Montana State to make a run at Yates.
