Vanderbilt may have just landed the centerpiece of its 2020 recruiting class as Texas native Ken Seals has announced his commitment to Derek Mason’s Commodore program.
The 6-foot-3, 202-pound Seals is a native of Weatherford, Texas and is currently ranked as a three-star prospect by 247Sports Composite Rankings. In addition to his star ranking, Seals is listed as the No. 2 pro-style quarterback prospect from the Lone Star State after passing for 2,654 yards and 20 touchdowns during his junior season for Weatherford High School.
Seals is just the second recruit to commit to Vanderbilt’s 2020 recruiting class but with a quarterback now on board, the Commodores would be wise to build around the program’s future signal caller to round out the remaining spots open on the team’s recruiting board.
The Texas native announced his commitment with the following message on Twitter:
“First of all, I need to thank God for showing me guidance and blessing me with the ability and opportunity to be in this situation. I would also like to thank all of my teammates I’ve ever played with and my high school coaches, this decision was made possible with your help. And to my parents who have showed me unending love and support through the good and bad that comes with playing quarterback. With all of that said, I am honored and proud to announce that I am committed to Vanderbilt University and will continue my playing career with Coach Mason and The Commodores! #GodBless”
