So, here’s the important difference between Clark Lea’s 2022 recruiting class and most of the recruiting classes we’ve seen at Vanderbilt over the last few years.

Daveon Walker is the 16th-best prospect in Vanderbilt’s class in the 247 Sports composite, out of 22 players. Daveon Walker also ranks in the top 1000 of the national rankings, and 247’s own evaluators are high enough on him to rank him as the #40 prospect in Georgia. He’s a tall, fast receiver who had 60 receptions for 1154 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior on a state championship team — again, in Georgia — and this is one of the lower-rated prospects in the class.

I like where this is going, personally.
