Taylorsville, Miss. quarterback Kris Thigpen called Vanderbilt Monday to accept a scholarship offer, and his commitment was accepted by the Commodore coaching staff, according to Taylorsville coach Shannon White. But on Tuesday, Vandy coach Bobby Johnson called back to inform White and Thigpen that the commitment could not be accepted. Vanderbilt's admissions department felt that the 17 Thigpen had scored on the ACT test was insufficient to meet Vanderbilt's admissions standards.
