Vanderbilt did not have a single 4-star prospect in its 2017 recruiting class. On Friday, it picked up its second 4-star commitment of the 2018 recruiting cycle.
Camron Johnson, a wide receiver out of Brentwood, Tenn., announced his commitment to the Commodores on Twitter, choosing Vanderbilt over some other notable programs.

“I would like to thank all of the colleges who have believed in me throughout this recruiting process,” Johnson said in the note he shared on Twitter. “It’s been extremely stressful and difficult at times, but I’m happy to have finally come to a decision. I will be attending Vanderbilt University to continue my education as well as my football career! Thank you for all the support from my family, friends, coaches, and countless others. I’m excited to get this thing rolling and to do some big things at Vanderbilt.”
The 6-foot-1, 182-pound receiver is rated the No. 47 prospect at his position and the No. 8 prospect from the state of Tennessee, according to the 247Sports Composite Ranking.
