Vanderbilt Commodores Signing Day Primer: 2016 Class

It’s National Signing Day for Vanderbilt and everybody else around the country. Head Coach Derek Mason and the rest of his staff have worked hard at assembling a class full of student athletes and guys who could excel on the football field.

As of 6 am Wednesday morning, Vanderbilt is expected to sign 19 prospects with the possibility of signing more. At least five recruits still have the Commodores in the mix, so throughout today, it will be busy times on West End. 

Here is a quick breakdown on when the current committed prospects are expected to send in their letter of intent.
