Yarbrough played Thursday in his team's season-opening win over Oklahoma Baptist, tallying two tackles. The senior was an All-Great American Conference honorable mention last season after totaling 27 tackles, including 1.5 for loss, while playing all 11 games for the squad.
He also played eight games as a freshman in 2019, while the 2020 campaign was canceled due to COVID-19.
The sports management major initially came to the Division II school in Arkansas from Sachse High School in Texas, which also released a statement.
Ouachita Baptist is scheduled to play its second game of the season on Saturday against Southern Nazarene.
