Bailey McElwain has committed to Vanderbilt according to a report on AL.com, McElwain was committed to Stanford as a greyshirt (delayed enrollment). McElwain, however, visited and was offered by Vanderbilt back in February.
McElwain, a 3-star Scout.com prospect, is rated as the nation's No. 65 inside linebacker prospect for 2016. Some services rate him as high as No. 3 as a fullback.
Back in February McElain discussed his visit to Vanderbilt with Scout.com's John Garcia Jr.
"It was nice," he said. "The coaches said they want me to start as a freshman. They thought I was physically ready."
"It was nice all around," he said. "They had a nice indoor facility and I like the scheme they have planned. I really liked the facilities.It would be cool to play in the SEC and to compete every week against local schools."
McElwain looks like a solid pickup for the Commodores, regardless of the position he plays. However, if he indeed was told he would start as a freshmen, look for his position to be fullback.
With the addition of McElwain, Vanderbilt's 2016 recruiting class has grown to 21.
