Vanderbilt gets another fine commit

Vanderbilt continues its good work on the recruiting front this season. The Commodores have picked up a verbal commitment from athlete Jonathan Goff of St. John's Prep in Danvers, MA. Goff is a teammate of another Vanderbilt commitment Jonathan Loyte, and the 2 helped lead St. John's to an 11-1 record last year and a national ranking this year.

"Goff is a special athlete," said St. John's Head Coach Jim O'Leary. "He's done a little bit of everything for us so far. A year ago he was playing quarterback for us. He's played WR/DB/QB/RB/LB and TE," O'Leary said with a laugh. "He's playing tailback and linebacker for us this year. He committed to Vanderbilt along with Loyte."

O'Leary said that Goff has a tremendous upside because he has a lot of room to grow. "One of the interesting things about Goff, is that he is only 16 years old. He won't even turn 17 until right before Christmas. So he's a year behind all of the other kids that are in his class. So he has a lot of upside. He's just an all around good athlete. One of the schools up here offered him a basketball scholarship. He's a 11.0 100 meters guy right now. He chose Vanderbilt over offers from Wisconsin, Indiana, Stanford, and Connecticut among others."

Vanderbilt picked up some good players in last year's class, and they are off to a tremendous start this year.
