Sehic commits to Vandy

Vanderbilt adds to solid incoming class by landing Samir Sehic, one of the country's most overachieving frontcourt players.

Vanderbilt notched a key victory on Tuesday, gaining a commitment from Samir Sehic. A 6-8, 255-pound big man who ranks No. 20 at power forward in the Class of 2015, Sehic announced for the Commodores over co-finalists Wake Forest and Davidson.

A high academic achiever, Sehic — whose parents are natives of Bosnia — also had drawn offers from Harvard, Princeton, Notre Dame and Northwestern.

He confirmed his commitment via Twitter:

"Truly blessed to say that I have officially committed to Vanderbilt University!"

Sehic competed very effectively at national events. He played credibly at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in June, and he stepped up a level at the Lawson/Oladipo Camp at the onset of the July evaluation period. He also played well in Las Vegas to end the month.

While not the most explosive, he's a tough, no-nonsense big man who loves to use his strength advantage to overpower opponents. He sets up shop inside thanks to a sturdy base and is difficult to bump out of position. He turns over either shoulder and scores effectively off the glass, and he's adept at drawing free throw opportunities. He also can knock down a three-pointer when he has hit feet set.

Kevin Stallings' program has amassed a very strong 2015 haul. In addition to four star Sehic, Vandy also has won commitments from three star prospects Djery Baptiste, Joseph Toye and Camron Justice. It's a very talented, very balanced class for Commodores.
