The Vanderbilt Commodores needed a boost in the 2019 recruiting class, and they got one on Saturday evening.
Derek Mason and his staff dipped into the JUCO ranks to land the newest addition to their 2019 class — 3-star DT Brandon Maddox.
As you can see in the tweet below, Maddox — who currently plays for Pima Community College — announced that he was committing to Vanderbilt:
