On Thursday, Vanderbilt picked up another addition to its 2019 recruiting class, and it comes at the most important position on the field.
While Jamil Muhammad is listed as an “athlete” by both Rivals and 247 Sports, Vanderbilt is bringing him in to play quarterback.

But he impressed Vanderbilt coaches enough in camp to earn an offer, and he also had scholarship offers from Memphis, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State.
He also scored a 33 on the ACT according to his Twitter profile, and he’s the nephew of former Vanderbilt basketball player Howard Pride. Here is a highlight video from his sophomore year (obviously there’s no highlight tape from his junior year since he didn’t play):
