Vanderbilt has once again found recruiting success in the state of Georgia.
The Commodores received a commitment Thursday from Alpharetta High School wide receiver Carlos Burse, who’s considered to be the 27th-best prospect in the state of Georgia and No. 277 prospect overall by ESPN RecruitingNation.
Burse chose Vanderbilt over offers from Florida, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Virginia Tech.
“It was the academics mainly, and I wanted to build my own little legacy over there,” Burse told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Vanderbilt showed me the most interest.”
Burse is the 10th prospect to commit to Vanderbilt for 2013 and the fourth prospect from Georgia. Quarterback Johnathon McCrary from Ellenwood, Ga., was the first prospect to commit to Vanderbilt for 2013.
