Marquez Hall, a 4.32 forty speedster has committed to Vanderbilt. Hall, who doubles as a running back, cornerback and kick returner, felt that the combination of great education and chance to play early was too good to pass up.

"I thought Vanderbilt was good to me. I think it's a place where I can go and play early and on top of that, get a good education too. Vandy has a good medical school and I plan on majoring in physical therapy. I feel I can go and make an impact right away at Vandy. Nashville is a nice place. I verbally committed to Vanderbilt," said Hall.

Hall will officially visit Vanderbilt on January 12. Hall was going to visit Vanderbilt on December 10 but had tests that day.

As a senior Hall had 55 tackles, 1 interception, 90 carries for 980 yards and 8 touchdowns. He only returned two kicks because opponents were reluctant to kick to him.

One of the fastest players at any level in the state of Alabama, Hall hopes to get even faster before he reports to Vanderbilt.

"I'm trying to improve that time, I want to go to college running a 4.1. I've been working hard for that. I'm just excited for track season actually. My goal last season was to win state in the 100 meters. I pulled a muscle in the state meet last year so I wasn't at my best. This year I want to win it," said the future Commodore speedster.

Vanderbilt also picked up a commit from Justin Green a 6-7, 210 from Charles Henderson High School in Troy, Ala. Green visited Vanderbilt for the Kentucky game. Later Green was offered by the Vanderbilt staff and immediately accepted the offer. Green is described as a tall, rangy player, with very good speed, who is not afraid of contact.

Hall and Green are the eleventh and twelfth Vanderbilt commits. Verbal commitments are not binding. National signing day is February 1. Click HERE to see a complete list of Vanderbilt commits. Top Stories
