A few days ago, Ean Pfeifer told Saturday Down South that he chose Vanderbilt because it was the perfect blend of an Ivy League level education with the chance to play SEC level football.
It is the best of both of his worlds.
On Thursday, it appears another player with the same loves chose the Commodores over a chance to go to the Ivy League. With schools like Yale, Harvard and Dartmouth pursuing Sam Dobbs, a tight end out of Fairburn (Ga.), the three-star prospect decided to go with Vanderbilt. Dobbs is a 6-foot-5, 220 pound prospect with very good hands. He is Vandy’s fifth commitment of the 2015 class.
“I am extremely honored and proud to announce that I have verbally committed to Vanderbilt Football!! #AnchorDown #GlorytoGod #SECbaby!!!” Dobbs put on his Twitter page.
Besides Dobbs, things may be heating up for the Commodores in the coming weeks. Wide receiver Emanuel Hall and offensive lineman Justin Skule may be getting close to picking Vanderbilt, they indicated this week. Both are three-star prospects, with Hall also considering Ole Miss and Skule considering Virginia.
