Vanderbilt suffers decommitment from 2023 recruit out of Louisiana
Vanderbilt lost a recruit from its 2023 class when Reese Mooney, a 3-star quarterback, shared on social media that his recruitment is “100% open.”
“First off I want to thank Vanderbilt and all of its coaches especially Coach Lynch for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a great university. They are first class all around there,” he wrote on social media. “But after lots of discussion with my family and my coaches I have decided it is best for myself and family that I reopen my recruitment.”
Mooney committed to Vanderbilt in November, and he has a reported 33 offers. Mooney, who is from Denham Springs, Louisiana, was expected to attempt to also play baseball for the Commodores. Mooney reportedly chose Vanderbilt over the likes of Georgia Tech, Miami, and West Virginia, but has also drawn interest from Nebraska.
Vanderbilt is monitoring Lipscomb Academy 3-star quarterback Hank Brown, as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Joey Lynch has evaluated the Illinois native multiple times in person. But the ‘Dores have not offered Brown so far, Vandy247 reported.
Vanderbilt has 4 remaining recruits, a linebacker, cornerback, wide receiver and running back, in a class that is ranked No. 39 in the country.
