Using each player’s 247Sports Composite rating, here’s Vanderbilt’s top uncommitted recruiting targets for 2015

Top Targets

1. Marvell Tell, S, 6-2, 175, Encino, Ca., Four-Star: Tell has interest in Vanderbilt, but should stay west, with USC, Oregon and UCLA as the heavy favorites. The safety’s best skills are closing speed and instincts.

2. Frank Buncom IV, CB, 6-1, 190, San Diego, Ca., Four-Star: Buncom received an offer from Vanderbilt made an official visit on Nov. 29. However, the cornerback is expected to commit to Stanford, according to the 247Sports crystal ball predictions.

3. Quenton Meeks, CB, 6-2, 195, Crescent City, Ca., Three-Star: Vanderbilt holds an 80-20 advantage in crystal ball predictions over Washington to earn Meeks’ commitment. The cornerback’s best attributes are his tackling ability and instincts. However, he needs to improve his speed and reactive quickness.

4. Ke’Shawn Vaughn, RB, 5-10, 210, Nashville, Tenn., Three-Star: Vanderbilt is the favorite to land the former Pearl Cohn High School standout. Vaughn has good vision, footwork, change of direction and a solid build entering his freshman season.

5. Bradrick Shaw, RB, 6-1, 205, Birmingham, Ala., Three-Star: The Hoover product is expected to commit to Vanderbilt over Alabama, according to the crystal ball predictions. Shaw has a great build and good vision, but must improve in several areas including speed, footwork and explosiveness.

6. Robert Windsor, DT, 6-5, 260, Fond Du Lac, Wis., Three-Star: Windsor ranks as the No. 5 player in Wisconsin. Vanderbilt is among the defensive tackle’s favorites, which also includes Purdue and Illinois.

7. Marcus Marshall, RB, 5-9, 200, Raleigh, N.C., Three-Star: Marshall is expected to commit to Vanderbilt over Wake Forest and N.C. State. He ranks as the No. 42 player in North Carolina and the No. 91 running back overall.
