committed to the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday. Vandenburg said he was won over by how well-rounded athletically and academically the school is., a junior college tight end from College of the Desert in California,
"Only a few schools can compete with Vandy on an academic and football level," Vandenburg said. "Out of those schools, Vanderbilt has the most stable coaching staff, which is important. No other school had the combination of those three things."
He was at Vanderbilt for a visit this weekend, and he's scheduled to visit Arkansas next weekend. There is no word yet on whether he'll go through with that trip now that he's pledged to Vanderbilt.
Vandenburg is rated by ESPN as the top junior college tight end in the 2013 class and the No. 10 overall juco prospect. He holds scholarship offers from the likes of Florida State, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Miami, Nebraska and Kansas State.
