Unconfirmed: Vandy Might Get Va. Tech Transfer

A report on SI.com indicates that Va. Tech freshman committment Brandon Barden will be leaving Virginia Tech and that his first preference is to come to Vandy.
You can read the article here.

Barden is a rivals and scout 3 star and received a 71 rating (out of 100) from ESPN.com. He is classified as an athlete as he was a high school QB, but went to Virginia Tech to play wide receiver (or tight end). We will update you as details unfold.

Should this work out, it will occur under sad terms as his motivation is primarily related to the recent shootings at Virginia Tech, however he will be a welcomed addition to our incoming recruits.

I guess this is good news for Vandy, but I can't help but feel bad for the Hokies. I know they already lost a basketball player because of the horrible massacre.

Wonder why he picked Vandy over Richmond?

Proof that Stan doesn't read the Hotline...this was linked to on Monday from a story Brett Hait wrote in the Nashville City Paper.

From Monday’s Hotline:

With football in mind, Brett Hait double dips in today's Nashville City Paper, and discusses how Virginia Tech Tight End Brandon Barden might be in black and gold next season. While the circumstances surrounding Brandon's transfer are absolutely horrible, there is little doubt he could be an impact player for Coach Bobby Johnson.

Whoops, skipped over that part.

I hate you Bobby.
