Vanderbilt football has been so blessed by getting a good coach, a good record, and good recruiting that some of our fans are actually looking a little spoiled while they are upset over missing out on a few guys. Now that is a problem that is a problem I am happy to have. Seriously though, when this class is put in perspective, it is crazy how much of an improvement it is over anything we have ever had before. All off these young guys that signed today would have been a feature recruit in any class before them. And they are just one part of the much improved program we have here.
I am excited if you cannot notice. And this list is not just a bunch of names, they are pieces of a team. We have basically built the most impressive offensive line in school history in only two years of work. Moreover, we reloaded at linebacker and defensive line with this class more so than we have ever reloaded at a single position with a single class. Not to mention the general playmakers that are all over the place now. I also love how the majority of these guys have been known by our fan base for a while now, because they bought into James Franklin so quickly and committed a while back. It shows how proud these guys are to be a part of the huge changes going on at our school. Good stuff.
I guess that is enough rambling excitement for the day. I was going to do my own analysis, but so much stuff has already been published that my words are basically useless.
