Josh Henderson Commits to Vanderbilt

Even in dark times, there's a ray of light, and for most of us that's basketball season.

Josh Henderson, a 6'11" center from Roanoke, Virginia has committed to Vanderbilt.

Henderson has a 90 rating on ESPN. He is rated a 3-star prospect on both Scout and Rivals. Before you let the Scout and Rivals ratings sway you to think this is not a huge pickup, we beat out Wake Forest, Davidson, Maryland, and Virginia to get him.

Two players that Stallings needed badly out of this recruiting class were a center and a point guard. We managed to land both before the early signing period. In 2007-08, we had only Goulbourne and Tchiengang before the early signing period was over. We landed Taylor and Tinsley in the spring.

Expect Stallings to be in on a few guys and to sneak up on the pack. If the men's basketball team meets expectations, expect the next step to made next year.
