Wow! While everybody's gabbing in Birmingham, the Commodores grab another recruit

We're sitting here analyzing a bunch of canned answers from Bobby Johnson and meanwhile Jerrell Priester is committing to Vanderbilt. Unbelievable. We've got the biggest recruiting class in the SEC right now, one more than we signed in our last class.

Priester's listed by some folks as a running back, others as an athlete. Douglas James over at VSL is comparing him to D.J. Moore. He's 5-foot-9, 185 pounds, about the same size Zac Stacy was this time last year. No stars yet, but ESPN just rated him as a 77, which is higher than Stacy, Tate or Norman from February's signing class. Priester had offers from Notre Dame and Kentucky.

Speaking of Kentucky, what the heck's going on with the Wildcats? They lose another recruit to the Dores and have only two commitments so far. Oh, and one of them is a kicker. is slowly slapping stars on everybody, too. Noticed that Logan Stewart and Sharrod Golightly each picked up three stars in the last few days, which means nine of our verbal commitments — exactly half — have three stars, and expect that number to grow.
