Vanderbilt Scores 3 Top Recruits With Verbal Pledge

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Coach James Franklin said he's "all in" for Vanderbilt football, and on Friday, he scored with one of the biggest recruiting days in school history.

Brian Kimbrow, the state's top recruit, spurned Tennessee and others to join McGavock's Caleb Azubike, and Ensworth's Cory Batey to pledge their verbal commitments to the Commodores.

The speedy Kimbrow is ranked as a four or five star recruit after rushing for 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns at Memphis East last fall.

The 6'4", 240-pound Azubike is a defensive end that had 17 sacks as a junior. Batey is a 6-foot wide receiver that can also play defensive back.

They put Vanderbilt over the double-digit commitment mark for the class of 2012 with 11 total.
