Commodores set to host Peach State two-way star

Brookwood (Ga) athlete Kendall Williamson has had his eye on Vanderbilt for some time and since the Commodores offered earlier this year, this 3-star recruit has taken a serious interest in what the team from Nashville is selling. This weekend he will be on campus and it's a visit that could go a long way towards the Commodores landing a commitment from Williamson.

3-star recruit, Kendall Williamson has been to Vanderbilt once before but it was a short visit and not near long enough for what he wanted. Well this weekend, Williamson will get the opportunity to receive an extensive look when he and his family make their way to campus this weekend for an unofficial visit. 

"Myself and both of my parents are coming up this Saturday to visit Vanderbilt and I am really looking forward to it," said Williamson. "I was able to briefly visit Vanderbilt last summer but I am looking forward to this visit because I will get the chance to see everything I need, My parents wanted to come to, so it will be good to get their opinions on everything. It should be an exciting time because it's a visit I have been wanting to take for some time now."

The Commodores are recruiting Williamson for both sides of the ball as they see him as a productive receiver on offense or even a shut down, big corner back on defense. 

Either side of the ball is fine with the Atlanta area athlete. Vanderbilt's academic prestige, status within the Southeastern Conference and the rise head coach Derek Mason is taking the program to, is what impresses Williamson and has him so interested in the Commodores. 

"This visit this weekend will really give me a great look at their university and how I could see myself fitting into the lifestyle. Academics are big for me and Vanderbilt has one of the best degree's you can receive. They are also making strides in football and I like what Coach Mason is doing with them. Vanderbilt honestly offers the total package, so I'm looking forward to seeing everything they have to offer," Williamson said. 

The Commodores have the opportunity to impress Williamson this weekend but he didn't state whether he would be any closer to making a commitment after his trip to Nashville. Vanderbilt is seen as a strong contender for the Peach State recruit but other's remained involved with his recruitment as well. 

Besides holding the offer from Vanderbilt, Williamson also is considering offers from Ga Tech, Michigan St, Louisville, Miss State, NC State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Tulane, Wake Forest and others.
