It's national signing day. Come discuss the Vanderbilt Commodores 2012 signing class.

Important developments:

  • As of 9:53 CST, five players with at least one four-star rating have faxed in their commitments (Brian Kimbrow, Andrew Jelks, Darreon Herring, Jacob Sealand, and Caleb Azubike). UPDATE: Stephen Weatherly makes it six players.
  • Another four-star recruit, Josh Dawson, decommitted from Vanderbilt to choose Georgia. A loud cackling was heard across the southeast, thought to be coming from Todd Grantham's general area.
  • The biggest surprise thus far has been the commitment of three-star recruit Harding Harper, who is poised to join Archibald Barnes and Hunter Hillermayer amongst the ranks of linebackers whose names make them sound like 1900s investment bankers.

As of 11:11 CST, Vandy's got 20 players lined up to join the team in 2012. All are rated three-stars or higher by Rivals.com.

We'll have more as events develop throughout the day. Pictures, discussion, and more are after the jump...

Here's Tip McKenzie and his family on signing day:
