Devellion will love this with his thread three spots down

And I think it's Elijah Staley. I wish he'd play basketball too. His basketball offers were really impressive.

How large should out class be this year? I'm assuming we can't early enroll anyone this time?

Seems like rumors out there that Staley's commitment is shaky too much self promoting going on between basketball and football. I don't expect him to be a part of this class after all, shame cause he seems like an ideal #2 QB prospect to go along with Samuels.

They should just let him play basketball. Thats what its about. He thought he could give it up but now he isnt so sure. I say just let him try and if its to much for him he will find out on his own and make a choice.hell he may even be able to pull it off. Will never know if they dont even give him the chance to prove he can balance all aspects.

re: 2014 Vanderbilt Football Recruiting Thread


There is a reason Vandy has only had 1 2 sport athlete that I can remember, Jamie Graham, and that only lasted 1 season. It's just not something that is really all that reasonable to expect at an academic institution like Vandy. I wonder how many 2 sport athletes Northwestern, Stanford, Notre Dame or Duke have had...

Looks like next weekend could be a big one for recruiting both Jesse and Barton think we could see a big jump in the number of commits by the end of next weekend (Annual BBQ Summer Event).

re: 2014 Vanderbilt Football Recruiting Thread


Well, this list just changed A LOT! Thanks to Chris Smith from the Vandy 247 page for the bulk of this information.

Decommits:
Jashon Robertson (offered by PSU)
Lloyd Tubman (flipped to PSU)
Chance Sorrel (flipped to PSU)
KJ Carta-Samuels
Mikale Wilbon
Bailey Granier
Trent Sherfield

Others Offered:
Emmanuel Smith (offered by PSU)
Amani Oruwariye (offered by PSU)

Note: Chris Smith reporting that Tre Herndon reaffirmed his commitment to Vanderbilt even after rumblings he would decommit if Franklin left.

Personal note: I thought this was a dead period? Lot of our guys magically found offers from PSU today. That is some strange coincidence...

ETA: Had made a mistake in listing Amani Oruwariye and Emmanuel Smith as decommits.
