Yesterday was the first day that 2020 recruits in most sports could sign a Letter of Intent.. Some of Vanderbilt’s notable signings yesterday:
- Men’s basketball signed Myles Stute, a 6’6” forward from Gonzaga College Prep in Washington, D.C.
- Men’s golf signed Jansen Preston and Cole Sherwood, and women’s golf signed Ariel Yu. Shawn has more about the golf signees.
- Women’s basketball signed two players: Emily Bowman, a 6’6” center from Huntsville High School in Alabama; and 5’4” guard Bella “No Relation” LaChance, from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Women’s basketball lost 64-51 to UConn last night. The Commodores trailed by as much as 26 at one point before rallying to make the final look more respectable, though it wasn’t a blowout in any sense of the word. Freshman Koi Love scored 14.
Men’s basketball travels to Richmond for its first road game of the season (and the only true road game of the nonconference schedule.) Game time is 6:00 PM CT and the game will be streamed on ESPN+.
Baseball opens the Black and Gold Series today. Andrew can probably explain what this is to you because I’m not the baseball guy around here.
VandySports has a new podcast.
