Mylon Brown just one Vanderbilt football recruit with good bloodlines

As I guess you would expect, Vanderbilt's new football recruits come from a long line of folks who got game.

For example, OL Mylon Brown is the nephew of the late great Jerome Brown, an All-Pro for the Eagles. Mylon, 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds with a 7-foot wingspan, played basketball in high school and once scored 32 points in a game.

Here's some more VU signees with athletic kinfolk:

• RB Wesley Tate's brother is Notre Dame wideout Golden Tate III, and their dad Golden played at Tennessee State.

• LB Blake Southerland's brother Brannon just finished his playing career at Georgia, where he started at fullback.

• QB Charlie Goro's dad played defensive back at Southern Illinois.

• LB Walker May's granddad played basketball and ran track at Villanova.

• OL Wesley Johnson's dad played baseball at Louisiana Tech and his grandfather played for the Baltimore Colts.

• WR Brady Brown's dad played football at North Texas.

• DB Eddie Foster's brother Dante was a cornerback at Texas Tech.

• TE Mason Johnston's sister Courtney plays volleyball at North Carolina.
