Optional Musical Accompaniment
As the early signing period starts tomorrow, it’s good to see that Clark Lea’s strong close to the 2022 recruiting class continues. Joining the fold on Monday were defensive line prospect Yilanan Ouattara, and defensive back (and former Duke commit) Savion Riley:
Of note: Ouattara (good luck pronouncing that name, SEC Network broadcasters) is from Germany, the second player in Vanderbilt’s 2022 class. We can only assume this is Daniel Diermeier’s work.
Meantime, South Carolina got Spencer Rattler, the former Oklahoma quarterback, to commit yesterday, and everybody on the college football internet completely forgot why he got benched at Oklahoma and thinks this is a big deal. Which, it is, because South Carolina was playing a grad assistant there last year, but I guess once you’ve been deemed a five-star, you’re a five-star forever regardless of what else you do in your career.
