Potts talks visit to Vanderbilt

James Potts, a heavily recruited running back from Delray Beach, Fla., visited Vanderbilt over the weekend. Potts, who earlier committed to Buffalo, is having second thoughts on the Bulls program and took an official visit to check out the Nashville school.

"It was nice, it was really nice. I like Vanderbilt a lot. Coach Johnson was very nice," said James Potts of his visit to Nashville.

However, Potts shared that he was not ready to make a switch just yet, "For now I'm going to stick to Buffalo but my decision isn't final yet."

Potts, who ran for almost 800 yards in 2009 despite missing two games with a shoulder injury, has numerous FBS offers. Besides Vanderbilt and Buffalo, Potts drew offers from Michigan State, Louisville, Memphis, Rutgers, Western Kentucky, Florida International, Indiana, Troy, Central Michigan, Western Michigan and Colorado State. However, despite all the offers Potts says it's either going to be Vanderbilt or Buffalo.

When asked about his desires in a school, Potts replied, "academics, program situation and me playing."

Potts said that the Vanderbilt coaches want him to come to Nashville in the summer. They said his chances of playing are good if he works hard and does what he has to do. He said the VU coaches, "see me as guy who is a 'touchdown scorer', a guy that has the moves.
