Recruiting is about to heat up

Post by BrentVU » Tue May 31, 2022 9:26 am

The four summer camps that Vandy's coaching staff will host in June, starting with this weekend, are huge for recruiting. Last year several of the campers so impressed the coaches that they earned scholarship offers on the spot for their attitudes and demonstrated abilities in camp (Maurice Edwards and Gumbo Gaskins are two).

On top of that, lots of prospects are now taking their official visits in June rather than waiting until Sept-December, as in the past. Vandy already has about 10 official visits that I'm aware of taking place in June. The biggest is 4-star edge rusher Bai Jobe of Norman, Okla., who has announced he's coming in late June...
Getting Jobe would be a coup of major proportions.

Here are four guys I know of scheduled to visit this weekend:
Jaren Woods 6-4 280 DE LaGrange TX
Elinneus Davis 6-3 295 DT Moorehead, MN
Kelvon McBride WR/DB 6-4 205 Mobile Cottage Hill Christian Academy, AL

And here are three guys for the following weekend:
De’Jamarion Thomas 6-4 325 DL Tulsa-Union, OK
Nnamdi Udeogu 6-5 228 DE Rockville-Georgetown Prep, MD
Andre Cojoe OL 6-6 330 Arlington-Timberview, TX

BIG recruits in more ways than one.

OK, guessing about recruiting is always tricky, but I am going out on a limb: I'm predicting Kelvon McBride of Mobile is going to be Vandy's next commitment. You heard it here.

Here is the competition for 4-star edge rusher Bai Jobe... you might say that with competition like this, Vandy has NO chance. But Jobe made an unofficial visit to Vandy back in April (at his own expense from Norman Okla.) and got the royal treatment from Coach Lea & Co., and is now coming back for an official visit June 24 (spending one of his five allowed official visits), so in my mind that at least that spells some genuine interest.

Jobe is being recruited by some top programs. It says a lot about CCL and staff that he is willing to make an official visit.

Here's another 4-star guy visiting this weekend... Anthony Brown, 6-0 180 ATH, Abernathy, Texas... a two-way player who has both an offensive and a defensive film reel.

Looking at Jobe’s finalists:
The pessimist in me says he just wants a free trip to Nashville, as Miami is the only other “cool” city on the list.
The realist says we have little chance of outbidding the others in NIL $.
The optimist says maybe he just really likes Lea and Vanderbilt.

I'm hear we've got more than a few 1* types interested. Sure, they are undersized and kinda flabby, but they make up for that by being extra slow. 😉

OK, I am one-for-one in predicting the next commitment. I'm feeling lucky and am going to try it again...

I think it will be one of these two guys, both of whom are scheduled to be on campus this weekend...
London Humphries 6-3 185 WR Nashville-CPA, TN
Junior Sherrill 5-10 175 WR Nashville-Lipscomb, TN

BTW, this weekend is a HUGE one for official visitors, with at least three 4-star prospects on tap to visit (Bai Jobe, Miles Walker, and Randon Fontenette), as well as several others.

I'm hoping we get some great news after this weekend! I am impressed with some of the recruits Coach Lea is getting on campus. If we could get a couple of 4* guys to commit, that would be huge.
