Weekend Vandy Recruiting Rundown

It was a huge weekend for Vanderbilt recruiting. The Commodore picked up a new commit and offered several other players. Additionally, several previously committed prospects affirmed their commitments to Vandy after visiting over the weekend.


Khari Blasingame - Safety from New Market, Ala. who decommitted from Minnesota and then committed to Vandy.


Jesse Burkett - Status hasn't changed but Stanford is going hard after Burkett. He might be the most uncertain of the remaining VU commits.

Rashad Canty - Canty committed very recently and visited Vandy over the weekend. No indication that his status has changed. He did get an offer from Nebraska since committing to the 'Dore staff.

Kyle Gibson - Visited Vandy this weekend. Appeared in photo in Commodore locker room with other VU secondary commits. Still has "2014 Vandy Committ" on top of his twitter page.

Cole Hardin - Visited Vandy this weekend. Tweeted, "Had a great visit tonight with @CoachLightner" [New Vandy OL coach]

Tre Herndon - Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. Earlier stated he was solid with Vandy and no reason to believe that has changed.

Bryce Lewis - Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. "The HC and I! He is an amazing coach and better man, can't wait to play for him! Anchor down!"

Amani Oruwariye - Visited Penn State but has not committed despite one recruiting service listing his as a PSU commit (since corrected).

Dallas Rivers - Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. Wrote, "It's been real Nashville ?? Great visit!" Was one of several commits that early on stated they were still solid with Vandy.

Trent Sherfield - Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. Sherfield has been a Vandy recruiting advocate in a similar manner as Commodore QB Josh Grady was a couple years ago. Sherfield is as solid as a rock.

Emmanuel Smith - Probably Vandy's most coveted remaining commit. Recently offered by Mississippi State. Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. Tweeted "Got chill bumps watching the highlight tape 4 Vandy I just can't wait to be here &play for an amazing coach,team &community"

Kameron Uter - Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. No word on how the visit went. Keep in mind that Uter plays baseball too and is a talented pitcher. He likely is in communication with Tim Corbin as well as the football staff.


Bailey Granier - Visited Vanderbilt this weekend. Said, "Great visit at Vandy this weekend! Loved it!!" Visited Louisiana Tech last week.

Mikale Wilbon - Committed to Nebraska on Sunday night.


Oregon running back commit Tony James has received an offer from Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt has offered athlete Ronald Monroe of Sugarland, Texas. Monroe is a Washington State commit but was scheduled to take a visit to BYU. Monroe will visit Vandy on Jan. 31.

Georgia wide receiver Caleb Scott received a Vandy offer over the weekend. His father, Chuck, played WR at Vandy in the 1980s.

Florida prep defensive end Kevin Bronson has a Vandy offer and will visit VU next weekend.

Vanderbilt also offered Kolin Hill who is a Notre Dame commit.

DE Nifae Lealao has a Vandy offer. He was formerly committed to Stanford but wasn't admitted to the school. Cal, Texas and Vandy could be his choice.
