Vince Taylor wants to be an electrical engineer and play linebacker

Learned a couple of things from Jeff Lockridge's recent article about Vince Taylor, Vanderbilt's latest verbal commitment.

(Lockridge, by the way, is doing a fine job as the Vandy beat writer, as evidenced by the fact that he's actually mentioning recruiting.)

As you may remember, Vince is the 6-foot-1, 270-pound young man who runs a 4.7 40. That's awfully fast for a defensive lineman, which explains why he wants to play linebacker for the Commodores.

But that's not why he's coming to Vanderbilt. He says he'll play wherever he's needed. The real reason Vince Taylor chose Vanderbilt?

He likes Vanderbilt's electrical engineering program.

So a good recruiting class doesn't mean that Vandy stops signing future electrical engineers. It means that Vandy has started signing electrical engineers who weigh 270 pounds and run 40 yards in 4.7 seconds.
