VU Recruiting spotlight: Running backs

Vanderbilt is looking fairly solid for the 2007 campaign at running back but Cassen Jackson-Garrison will be graduating after the season and Jeff Jennings will be a senior in 2008. Jared Hawkins and Gaston Miller give Vanderbilt a promising future at the position but the Commodore staff must keep the pipeline going. Here's a look at the top running backs Vandy is pursuing.
