Two others chasing SEC commit

Malik Greaves is a standout safety prospect from Sandalwood High in Jacksonville and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Malik Greaves committed to Vanderbilt recently and talked about the season his future teammates are having.

"They are showing more fight and improvement this season," Greaves said. "Yes I would like them to win games that count. But they seem to get the point of how they need to improve. It's too early to call right now. Hopefully they can pick it up and stir some excitement."

Greaves says he'll be watching the rest of the season closely.

"I'm in the same boat as everyone else who is watching. I'm just watching on to see where Vanderbilt is headed this season."

Greaves, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, sees a good opportunity there and talked about that some.

"We haven't really talked about that. But I know they would like for me to come in and be that good [to start], meaning I need to make a huge improvement from now to when or if I get there. But I guess I will see when whatever happens."

Despite his commitment, Greaves says two other schools that made early offers are still recruiting him.

"West Virginia and Auburn are," he said. "If I visit anywhere else it would most likely be Auburn."

While his commitment is strong, Greaves talked more about the entire process and why he would consider even taking another visit.

"This recruiting proccess is very stressful. I feel like every little move us athletes make stirs up alot of opinions about us and I don't want to be stepping on any toes. All things don't always work out. So I must keep my eyes open for other situations and options."
