East Tennessee QB has high interest in Vandy

While the football team itself is preparing for their game this weekend against Georgia, the Commodores will also be hosting a large group of prospects. Within the group, 2018 quarterback John Foreback is set to make his second visit to Vanderbilt’s campus within the past two months.

Vanderbilt will always be looking to the future for football recruits and Foreback already appears squarely on the radar of the Commodores coaching staff.

The Morristown West signal caller really enjoyed his first visit to campus and is looking forward to making it back down to Nashville this weekend.

“I’m excited to get back down there this weekend to see their new uniforms but also see them compete against Georgia,” he said. “I love Nashville itself and I just really like being on the campus of Vanderbilt. Nashville is an amazing city and academically, Vanderbilt is a great choice for me.”

Standing 6’3 191 pounds, Foreback is a rising 2018 prospect with size, smarts and the potential to turn into a division one college quarterback.

So far on 2015 high school football season, Foreback has led his Morristown West team to a 2-1 record but the 2018 passer believes his team has all it takes to go far and turn in an excellent season.

“The season is going well for us right now. We are strong on both sides of the ball. We have great leaders and a great bond with each other. We have played well and played against some tough teams so far. I like where we are at and I think we are poised for a strong playoff run,” Foreback said.

While his football season is in full force, Foreback is also starting to see his college recruitment spike up with interest from multiple high caliber football programs.

“Besides my interest from Vanderbilt, I am also hearing from Cincinnati, Arkansas, Michigan State and Tennessee,” he said. “This weekend will be my second time at Vanderbilt and I plan to be back to camp with them next summer. I have also talked with Arkansas and I think I will visit them sometime this fall. My recruitment overall is going good for me but it’s still early in the process, so I am mainly focusing on developing my craft and my team itself.”

Vanderbilt already has an East Tennessee signal caller committed to the fold in Deuce Wallace and it appears they have their eyes focused on another quarterback from that area in John Foreback.
