Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 95 days away from Vanderbilt football’s season opener against Hawaii. 95 for the Commodores is defensive lineman Linus Zunk. The 6’6”, 260-pound redshirt freshman from Berlin, Germany, did not play in 2022 while redshirting but should work into the defensive line rotation this season. He’s one of two players from Germany on Vanderbilt’s defensive line.

Yesterday was a big day for Vanderbilt in the transfer portal. First, Vanderbilt football scored a commitment from former Notre Dame linebacker Prince Kollie.

Kollie, from Jonesborough, Tennessee, was rated as a four-star recruit in the Class of 2021, and he played in all 13 games last season for the Irish. Ironically, his lead recruiter at Notre Dame was some guy named Clark Lea. No idea if that played a role in his decision to transfer to Vandy.

Then, the basketball team landed a commitment from South Dakota big man Tasos Kamateros, originally from Athens, Greece:

The official Twitter account pointed out that he’ll probably feel at home in Nashville.

Joey Dwyer from VandySports had an instant analysis of the commitment:

And, there’s more smoke to Tyrin Lawrence announcing a return to Vanderbilt.

In other news, the SEC baseball tournament starts today, though Vanderbilt won’t open until Wednesday. We’ll have an open thread later. Maybe. If we don’t, just use the Anchor Drop. The SEC Network will show all four games, resulting in the rare pre-emption of the Paul Finebaum Show.
