Basketball

A quick recruiting update: Julian Royal, high school teammate of Vanderbilt target Dai-Jon Parker announced his commitment to Georgia Tech today. Parker is and Royal was being heavily recruited by UGA. With Royal opting for the Yellow Jackets over the Bulldogs, the line of thinking is that this is a good sign for Vanderbilt going forward. We'll see if that holds true in the near future, as Parker is expected to announce his decision relatively soon. Parker is down to VU, UGA, Oregon State and Rhode Island, where he is apparently taking a recruiting visit this weekend, despite what have been claimed to be false reports that he would be committing to the Commodores this weekend. (Again, if you aren't following Anchor of Gold on Twitter, you are potentially missing the immediate notification of breaking Commodore news. Do yourself a favor, sign up for an account, and follow AOG. We promise not to tweet about the boring intricacies of our daily lives if you won't. Unless you request them, of course.)
