"I just got back from Vanderbilt," said Evan Ruiz from Baton Rouge, (La.). "I went there for an unofficial visit this weekend, and I committed while I was there. I went out to eat with my parents that night, and we felt like it was the right time."
"I had gone in thinking I was going to commit. I have been doing my research. I wanted to take the visit. I was impressed with everything I saw. It's a school of academics, and that was my main goal. Their main is to get me graduated."
"I called coach [Kenny] Carter. He told me to call the head coach [Bobby Johnson] and the offensive line coach [Robbie Caldwell]. I called them. They were very excited. The offensive line coach is very excited. He now has three offensive line commits, and that's what they wanted. I think it's a good class, and they are very excited."
The Louisiana prospect enjoyed his visit to Nashville and was impressed with the campus.
"It's one of the nicest, cleanest areas I have ever been. It really appeals to me because everyone's goal is to graduate. I was really impressed with the facilities, and all the people. It is a great atmosphere to be in," Ruiz said.
When asked of other visits Ruiz said, "I don't think I am going to take any more visits. I am sure this is where I want to go. It feels great to be committed. I get to focus on my season and my grades. I don't have to worry about visiting and worrying about the number of scholarships I get. I think this place fits me."
