On Wednesday night, the Vanderbilt Commodores picked up another addition to the 2018 signing class, as Tyler Steen, an offensive lineman from high school powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, FL, signed a Letter of Intent to attend Vanderbilt.
Steen had committed to Louisville in September, but after taking an official visit to Vanderbilt earlier in December, he decided to sign with the Commodores on the first day of the early signing period. He’s listed at 6’5” and 300 pounds, and while some schools have been projecting him as a defensive lineman, Vanderbilt intends to play him on the offensive side of the ball.
In addition to Louisville, Steen also had offers from Duke, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Pitt, Virginia, and Wake Forest. The 247 Sports composite ranks him as the #104 offensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2018 and the #174 prospect in the state of Florida. He’s the fourth signee that Vanderbilt has landed from the Sunshine State in this class (not including Miles Jones, who has yet to sign a Letter of Intent.)
