Does God want Garrison Smith to go to Vanderbilt?
Thanks to Aaron, who points out that Atlanta's Garrison Smith, widely regarded as the No. 2 defensive tackle prospect in America, has narrowed his college choices down to 10.
They are, in alphabetical order: Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC and...
Oh yeah, Vanderbilt.

This says a lot about the Vanderbilt program. A five-star prospect lists nine perennial powerhouses and Vanderbilt as his top 10 choices.
Smith, who at 6-4, 250 is light for a DT but who runs a 4.7 (!) 40-yard dash, says he's going to let God point him to the right school. So if you're a Vanderbilt fan who believes in the power of prayer, you'd better get down on your knees and pray.
