Vanderbilt picked up their second recruit for 2016 when dual threat quarterback Deuce Wallace anchored down in Nashville. Wallace had been a Northwestern commit but flipped to the Commodores after attending Junior Day last weekend.

Derek Mason picked up his second recruit for 2016 on Sunday, getting a Northwestern commit to change his allegiance after the Commodores hosted a handful of high school recruits this weekend. Three-star quarterback Deuce Wallace announced that he'd be staying in his home state by playing for his "dream school" in Nashville.

Wallace broke the news on Twitter:

He gets bonus points for not referring to it as "the University of Vanderbilt," like a handful of players have during this recruiting cycle.

Wallace had committed to play in the Big Ten in March, but the visit to Vanderbilt's campus changed his mind. The dual-threat quarterback also had offers from Middle Tennessee State, Louisiana Tech, and Commodore rivals Temple. The 6'2" athlete has a strong arm and his high school tape suggests that he's comfortable making throws both in the pocket and on the run.

And he has the capability to hit receivers with jet-ski speed:

Wallace joins three-star Oklahoma safety Austin Quillen as the first two members of the Vanderbilt recruiting class of 2016.
