Vandy gets verbal from another Atlanta kid
The Dores just got their 15th commitment of the year, from wide receiver Chris Boyd of Roswell. That makes eight recruits from the Peach state, and six from the Atlanta area.
Boyd's 6-foot-5 and has some wheels. Rivals gives him three stars. No rating yet from the other guys.
He didn't have the high-profile offers that some of our other commitments have had. Apparently he really wanted an offer from Georgia Tech but never got one. He had offers from Elon, Hampton, Akron, MTSU and Air Force, but had just picked up a couple of Big 10 offers — Illinois and Indiana — when he got one from Vandy and took it.
He's visited Vanderbilt six times.
Anyway, 15 verbal commitments. Remember, we had two this time last year.
