Mac Pyle, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman from Adairsville (Ga.) High School, gave his pledge to the Commodores Monday. Pyle was selected first-team All-State in Georgia's class 1A by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Blake Luker, a 6-foot-5, 300-pounder from Collinwood High School in Collinwood, Tennessee, also accepted a scholarship offer. Luker, also an All-State selection, won the American General "Mr. Football" award as the top lineman in Tennessee in Class 1A.
Luker and Pyle became the 20th and 21st commitments for Bobby Johnson's first recruiting class. Luker also became the third player from Middle Tennessee to commit.
However, offensive lineman Brett Tobin of Green Bay, Wisconsin, appears to have de-committed from Vanderbilt in order to accept an offer from the University of Virginia. The Roanoke Times reported in Tuesday's edition that Tobin, a 6-foot-6, 275-pounder who committed last summer to Woody Widenhofer's staff, had reconsidered and committed to the Cavaliers.
Verbal commitments are not binding until recruits sign scholarship papers, which declare a player's intention to attend a given school. Signing day is Wednesday, February 6.
