Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 31 days away from Vanderbilt football’s August 27 season opener at Hawaii — exactly a month. There are two 31s on the roster (we’re doing duplicate numbers again, I guess.) The more notable one is defensive lineman Michael Spencer, who played in 11 games last season as a walk-on and at least has Division I size at 6’4” and 285 pounds. Freshman Landon Wells is a walk-on wide receiver from Brentwood Academy.

Yesterday, Vanderbilt football got a commitment from a three-star tight end with a ten-star name, Ka’Morreun Pimpton from Brewer High School in Fort Worth (the school’s actually in White Settlement, which, uh, is an interesting name for a town):

Pimpton is the 12th commitment in the 2023 class and at present, he’s the second-highest rated one behind four-star Martel Hight.

The Wooden Legacy announced its bracket; Vanderbilt will compete in the tournament starting on November 23, when they’ll play St. Mary’s (at 11 PM CT, no less), followed by a second game the next day against either Fresno State or Washington.
