Of the letters that have been delivered to Tinkham's mailbox, quite a few of them have been coming from that state of Tennessee. Nashville, Tennessee to be exact… "Vanderbilt has been sending me a bunch of mail," Tinkham said. "They've been basically sending me a bunch of updates about their football program."
Tinkham admitted to VandyMania.com that he doesn't know a great deal about the program. However, he has recently been paying close attention to the team, and is trying to learn more and more about the program each day. "I really don't much about them to tell you the truth," Tinkham said. "I just know that they are a part of the SEC, and that they have a really good program. I am not really sure about all of the specifics."
The fact that Tinkham knows very little about Vandy could all change fairly soon.
In an effort to learn more about the program, he intends to pay the Commodores a visit sometime in the near future…"I've been definitely thinking about visiting Vanderbilt," Tinkham said. "I've been thinking about maybe going there over the summer for a camp or something."
John does not claim a favorite as of date. However, he did admit that Vanderbilt is in the running for his services. "As far as having a top choice right now, I am not really sure," Tinkham said. "But I would say that Vanderbilt is definitely up there near the top."
John's recruitment is still in the developing stages, but he has been enjoying the process thus far. However he is still looking for that first scholarship offer to show up in his mailbox. Will the Commodores be the first program to offer the star linebacker? We will certainly keep you posted.
