Vanderbilt Football Recruiting Updates: Recapping a Week of Official Visits

Vanderbilt already got a big recruit this week when WR Jared Pinkney chose the Commodores. Are more four-star athletes primed to drop anchor with Derek Mason with National Signing Day fewer than two weeks away?

A big WR commitment - 6'5", 225 lb Jared Pinkney - was the latest domino to fall as the 2015 recruiting season kicked into high gear. We are fewer than two weeks away from National Signing Day, and Derek Mason's second class of high school athletes is beginning to take form. The Commodores have 17 players on their ledger and are in a heated race to add several more.

Vanderbilt will be flush with young talent in 2015, but there are plenty of gaps in the depth chart that some of the nation's elite prospects can fill. Mason didn't shy away from playing the guys he brought to Nashville last fall and pushed 10 true freshman into game action. With few starting jobs written in stone, assistants like offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and cornerbacks coach Todd Lyght can sell an opportunity for instant playing time at Dudley Field.

So who is Mason and his new and improved coaching staff targeting? We've got a breakdown of some of the team's recent developments on the recruiting trail:

Many thanks to CalGoldenBlogs's Avinash Kunnath for putting together the bulk of this excellent list. Fewer thanks go to me for failing to get it up before Jared Pinkney's commitment earlier this week.
