Vandy lands Another OL Verbal

Well its appears one good fact about CRC's promotion to head coach was that any OL target can feel even more confident in the future of the program. This was proven true when the Black and Gold got its 4th verbal commitment for the 2011 signing class. Vandysports.com and ESPN.com are both reporting that OL prospect Jake Bernstein, out of Crystal Lake (isn't that where Jason Voorhees is from?) Illinois has given his verbal commitment to the Commies. Bernstein stands at 6'4, 275 and ESPN grades him at a 78 (and the 69th overall OT prospect), while Rivals lists him as a 3-star prospect. Bernstein accepted the Vandy offer over offers from Cinci, Colorado, Minnesota and Memphis among others. He joins James Lewis (also rated 78 by ESPN) as the 2nd highly regarded OL prospect to give his verbal to Vandy. Bernstein is the 4th overall public verbal for 2011 (QB Damien Fleming and DE Connor Hart being the others).

I say it all the time that you build a football team from the inside out and having 2 real good and pretty big OL verbals early in the recruiting season and in a season when we lost our coach and are expected to bring in only 15 or so recruits, is huge.

Also just wanted to send my congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Stanimal! I had a great time at the wedding. Seamus doing the Twist was amazing, as was the spinach and artichoke dip....hmmmm.
