Kind of funny that you never heard of Korostelev nor Yan, because they were CSKA top '97s. Wolem wrote about both of them for quite a while, here are a few vids dating back to 10/11 season:

I hope they develop like Yakupov and not like Grigorenko.

EDIT: and on their early departure: I wouldn't call it outright stupid, time will tell. Though as always some talented kids continue to play in Russia (e.g. Artur Tyanulin of Ak Bars), so once again it will be interesting to compare the development of those who left and those who stayed. In recent memory of all players who sailed across the ocean only Yakupov succeeded as the top of his age group.
