Top Florida running back on campus this weekend

A top Florida running back who rushed for over 4,600 yards in his high school career is expected to take an official visit to Vanderbilt this weekend.

Kwane Doster, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound running back from Robinson High School in Tampa, Florida, is on Vanderbilt's list of expected official visitors for this weekend.

Doster, who also played linebacker and returned kicks for the Robinson Knights, gained 4,610 rushing yards in an illustrious high school career, despite being sidelined with an injury for six games during his junior year.

In his senior year just completed, Doster rushed 129 times for 1,292 yards (10.0 yards per carry) and 15 touchdowns. In a single game, Robinson's win over Alonso, Doster scored seven touchdowns, rushing 17 times for 353 yards.

New Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson and his staff hosted a dozen prospects on campus on official visits last weekend, and since then three visitors have made verbal commitments to Vanderbilt: Patrick Johnson, placekicker from Athens, Alabama; Chris Booker, a linebacker from Brandon, Mississippi; and Richard Freeman, and defensive end from Brentwood, Tennessee.

Verbal commitments are not binding. National signing day for football is February 6.
