"I was offered by Vanderbilt," said the junior. "I didn't really know what to expect, I went there because they invited me...They have a good selling point. It's in the SEC and they have a great education. It was really fun and I had a good time there."
The son of former Husker Tom Banderas, the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder made the Lincoln Journal Star's 1st team All-Super State in 2011, as Lincoln Southwest finished 9-2 in Class A on the year. As a junior, he recorded over 115 tackles.
As reported the last few weeks, Banderas still has plans to pick a school by the start of his senior year.
"I don't wanna have any pressure on my shoulders come my senior season," said Banderas. "I want to be able to focus on Lincoln Southwest and making it to state."
