Vanderbilt adds elite Texas prospect

Vanderbilt University is becoming a force on the recruiting trail for the class of 2009. Through Monday, seven of Vanderbilt's ten commitments are rated as three stars or better, including a pair of running backs in Warren Norman and Zac Stacey that should be impact players in the Vanderbilt offense. Now the Commodores can add an elite receiver to that future offense.

Argyle, Texas three-star wide receiver Brady Brown has been one of the most highly recruited wide receivers in Texas through the spring and summer. Recently, he decided to end his recruitment and has committed to the Commodores.

"Brady Brown has committed to Vanderbilt University," confirmed Brown's mother Vandi Brown. "He ended up with 16 offers and chose Vandy over such schools as Kansas, Iowa, Stanford, Duke and Virginia."

At 6-foot-5, Brown provides a big target for his quarterbacks, and a reliable target as well. No one showed a better set of hands at the Fort Worth Nike Camp in the spring and Brown has proven it in the pads as well. As a junior, Brown caught an amazing 97 passes for 1,077 yards.

Currently, Brown is rated by Rivals.com as the No. 55 wide receiver in the country and the No. 51 overall prospect in the state of Texas.
