Josh Eames, 6-4 1/2, 280, OL, Lower Cape May Regional
"I verbaled to Vanderbilt on Thursday. I had taken my official a week before".
Why did he choose Vanderbilt?
"I really liked it, I was really comfortable with the coaching staff, I liked the players. It was a perfect fit. It has a good background in academics and they are getting some good players."
Who was the runner up?
"Probably Princeton but Vanderbilt was a full ride and I didn't want to have the worries about the financing at Princeton."
What do you think is the most important talent you'll bring to Vanderbilt?
"It is probably my athleticism."
How solid is this commitment?
"Pretty solid, I haven't thought about whether or not I'll take visits. I have to talk that over with my parents but right now I doubt if I'll take other visits."
