"Overall, I think we've really helped ourselves in the talent perspective," says Franklin. "I think we really helped ourselves in the depth perspective. I can go through this individually, but I think by far we keep raising the bar in terms of what we're trying to do in recruiting."
One of Franklin's prized signers is Gerald Perry, a 3 star wide receiver from Whitehaven High in Memphis. This morning, he put pen to paper, signing his name on a letter of intent. Afterward, Perry made a bold prediction!
"I think the program's great," says Perry. "We're going to do a lot of new things this year. You know, Vanderbilt has never talked about going to the SEC Championship, and this year we're going to the SEC Championship. I guarantee you by next year we're going to win the National Championship."
You heard it here first! Also among the 26 member recruiting class - Perry's Whitehaven teammate Darrius Sims. He's a 5'9" defensive back with a 3 star ranking! The signing class includes 5 wide receivers, 5 defensive backs, 4 defensive linemen, 3 linebackers and 2 quarterbacks.
