Sam Dobbs Profile
Dobbs recapped his visit Sunday afternoon with VandyMania.com as he made his way back to the Atlanta area from Nashville.
"It was great, probably the most fun I've ever had," Sam Dobbs said of the weekend trip. "Nashville's the greatest city in the world. It was really a chance, though, to get to know the other recruits upcoming class. We got to bond as a group and really get to know one another better. They are about 15 or 16 of us that have committed (to Vanderbilt) and actually we received a new commitment today."
The weekend also gave Dobbs, a tight end, the opportunity to get to know the new offensive coordinator, Andy Ludwig, who recently joined Derek Mason's staff from Wisconsin.
"He seems like a great guy," Dobbs said on Ludwig. "I got the opportunity to be around him several times over the weekend and love what he brings to the table. I think the Vanderbilt offense has a bright future with Coach Ludwig calling the plays. I can't wait to play and be a part of it.
"I also spent a lot of time with Coach (Gerry) Gdowski. I got to know him even better and catch up and get his take on what the offensive coordinator has in store and his game plan for the tight ends."
Dobbs said that he had two favorites moments on the weekend, meeting with Coach Mason one-on-one and a trip down-the-road to the Tennessee Titans stadium.
"It was all a great experience, really," Dobbs said. "The night we went to LP Field for dinner was very special. They had the dinner set out just for us, it was formal, everyone dressed up. Then they brought out a magician who was doing all sorts of insane tricks. To watch him perform was a lot of fun.
"On Friday, my first day of the visit, I was scheduled to meet with Coach Mason. The meeting lasted around 20 minutes. We talked football, the direction he's taking the program, and then answered some specific questions I had. It went really well. I enjoyed getting to know the team overall and think that successful times are head of us at Vanderbilt."
Dobbs played in the RisingSeniors Georgia Junior Bowl in 2013 and has been invited to join the other players at the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta on Signing Day.
