We’re 32 days away from Vanderbilt’s season opener against Middle Tennessee. #32 on the roster is redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Wakefield. Wakefield was expected to emerge last year as a change of pace back behind Ralph Webb, but it never really materialized: Wakefield had 28 carries for 115 yards on the season, with 15 of those carries coming against Alabama A&M. Perhaps another year will give him more opportunities.
As we get closer to fall camp and summer camp season fades into the background, recruits who haven’t committed yet will begin to narrow their lists. Vanderbilt wound up on some of those yesterday, and since news is still slow we’ll share.

Basketball got in on the act, too, with four-star Daniel Ramsey naming Vanderbilt in his top 6:

Off the West End
The Braves scratched Kyle Wright from his latest start in AA... because they’re promoting him to AAA.
Meanwhile, C.J. Duncan and Trent Sherfield are in camp with the Arizona Cardinals; we would highly recommend they get out after this, though:
For his part, Sherfield’s making a strong early impression in Cardinals training camp.
David Price went eight innings and gave up one run... and got a no decision for his troubles.
