George came to Nashville on Friday with idea of committing to Vanderbilt already in mind. On Sunday, the Yellowhammer state cornerback made it official when he pledged his talents to the Commodores.
Rated as a 3-star prospect by Scout, George was a late add to the Commodores target board but quickly became a serious contender for a scholarship. The cornerback position in general was one of desperate need for the Dores, so they searched the recruiting trail looking to find the right fit. George fit the ball in many ways.
The North Alabama native has the size (6'2 180) length, athleticism and natural cover skills that head coach Derek Mason covets in his secondary.He is also a high quality student that searched out Vanderbilt and greatly wanted to be a part of the Commodores football program.
Previously committed to Richmond, George was all but set to be a Spider but once the Commodores came calling, he saw it as an opportunity to not only attend one of the best college's in the country but also be given the chance to play football in the Southeastern Conference.
George could be a bit under the radar when it comes to name recognition but the Commodores might have gotten themselves a steal. Finding a cornerback with the size, length and skill set of someone like George is tough to find and Vanderbilt could of had such a player fall right into their laps.
