Vanderbilt is entering Year 3 under Clark Lea, hoping to continue turning things around after a 5-7 mark a season ago. Heading into the 2023 season, the Commodores landed another piece for the defense out of the transfer portal.

This time, the commitment comes from transfer linebacker Prince Kollie out of Notre Dame. Coming out of high school, Kollie was a 4-star recruit and the No. 3 player out of Tennessee per the 247 Sports Composite for the class of 2021.

After two seasons with the Irish, Kollie is returning to Tennessee to play for the Commodores.

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 228 pounds, Kollie had 13 tackles as a true freshman in 2021. He added 19 tackles, 2.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks last year for Notre Dame.

We’ll see how Kollie fits into Vanderbilt’s scheme entering 2023.
