Vanderbilt Makes the Cut!

This 3-star football prospect from out of the state of Pennsylvania just recently narrowed down his list of schools to four programs. And the Commodores made the cut. Find out inside why Vandy is in fairly good shape to land his signature on National Signing Day.

VandyMania.com recently spoke with RB/DB prospect, Ibraheim Campbell, to get the very latest on the recruiting front. And according to the 6-0, 190 pound speedster from out of Chestnut Hill Academy, things have been going along pretty smooth.

Things have been going very well," the two-way standout said in regards to his recruitment. "There is nothing that I would change, in reference to how my recruitment has been going so far."

We'd have to say that we totally agree with the gifted 2010 prospect from out of the state of Pennsylvania. Especially after looking at this impressive list of scholarship offers. The Keystone State product currently has offers on the table from Boston College, Michigan State, Minnesota, Vanderbilt, Illinois, Northwestern, Richmond, Stanford, Temple, and Iowa. However, Campbell can only ink with one of these programs next February, which means that he would have to start trimming down his list sooner or later.

Apparently, the process has already started…"I pretty much have a top four right now," Campbell informed VandyMania.com. "My top four schools right now are Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Boston College, and Stanford."

Campbell did not give us any leeway in reference to which program has the early edge. But as we continued our conversation with him, it appears as if the ‘Dores are in pretty good standings to land the gifted speedster.

Vanderbilt was one of the first schools to offer Campbell a scholarship, which actually took place back in the month of March. Since picking up an offer from Vandy, Campbell and his primary recruiter have been keeping pretty close tabs on one another. "Coach Fisher has been primarily recruiting me from Vanderbilt," Campbell said. "I would say that we have a pretty good relationship. He is a good guy who is very honest with me. He's been keeping me up to date on the different things that have been going on around Vanderbilt. I feel like he has been honest with me the whole time."

Campbell had a chance to check out the campus this past spring. And it is almost safe to say that his visit to Nashville was an important factor in helping Vandy to solidy a spot in his top four.

"I visited Vanderbilt back in May with my mom and my brother," Campbell said. "I really enjoyed the visit. I can't really think of anything negative about the school. I had a chance to meet and talk with some of the professors about my possible major, whenever I attend college. It was very helpful. I really learned a lot about the school. It was a great experience."

Ibraheim who excels on both sides of the ball informed us that Vanderbilt has been recruiting him as a cornerback, and that he prefers to play on the defensive side of the ball. He also informed us that a decision could be coming around the end of September.
