Vanderbilt had some obvious advantages to Malik Greaves before he committed to the Commodores.
“First, I wanted to play in the SEC, and second, I wanted to get a good degree,” the safety from Jacksonville, Fla., told The Florida Times-Union.
That’s why Greaves chose Vanderbilt over offers from such schools as North Carolina, South Florida, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Greaves, who’s the second commitment for Vanderbilt’s class of 2013, should be able to help the Commodores’ secondary, according to Sandalwood High School coach Adam Geis.
“He’s a heck of a player,” Geis said. “He’s a phenomenal player for us.”
