JSerra Catholic (Ca) corner back David Eure is a rising West Coast recruit that is slowly gaining steam on the recruiting trail and things might just break open after the 5'11 170 prospect grabbed an official offer from Vanderbilt last weekend.
The Commodores offer came as a bit of a surprise for Eure but also not so much either. He admitted to noticing Coach Mason paying attention to him all day long and when he came up to him after the camp had concluded, he was excited to meet him and hear what he had to say. Part of the conversation was extending a Vanderbilt offer to the 3-star recruit.
"I thought I had a really good camp and I noticed Coach Mason paying attention to me through many of the drills," said Eure. "We talked after the camp was over and I was impressed with how he presented himself. He gave me the offer from Vanderbilt and told me who he would like me to come down for a visit and see if Vanderbilt was a good fit for myself. I feel very honored to have this Vanderbilt offer and I am definitely interested with the intentions to learn much more about their program."
Eure is an athletic cover corner whose best days of football could be ahead of him. He has solid size, length in his arms and speed to cover down the field and Coach Mason saw those skills first hand.
Vanderbilt is the first SEC school to offer Eure and he admitted to being very interested in playing in the Southeastern Conference. He also said that education is a big deal for him, so the Commodores offer an opportunity to not only play on a big stage in college football but also earn the type of education he is looking for.
"My coaches immediately started telling me to jump on the Vandy offer because it's an impressive offer to attain. They compete in the SEC and they offer one of the best education's you can receive in the country. Playing in the SEC is big deal. That's where a lot of the best talent in the country go to play, so the fact that I have an offer to play in that conference, really makes me happy. I am honestly excited about the Vanderbilt offer, so I am looking forward to building a great relationship with them." said Eure.
While Eure works at growing the relationship with the Vanderbilt coaches, he is also looking for a time to come out South for a visit.
"I do plan on visiting but I don't know exactly when that will be. I am thinking I will come down some time during my season or even after one of my games. I might be an official visit I take, I just don't know yet," he said.
The Commodores will have to remain interested as other schools are on the trail for Eure. Besides holding the offer from Vanderbilt, Eure also currently has offers from Air Force, Columbia, Nevada, Rutgers, San Diego St and San Jose St along with interest from many other schools.
There appears to be no rush for Eure when it comes to making a decision. He will continue to work hard, take in the interest and remain patient with his recruitment but Vanderbilt will remain a school of high interest for the Cali corner going forward.
