Vanderbilt’s class of 2013 received a boost on Thursday when defensive tackle Jay Woods from Jackson (Ga.) High School committed to the Commodores.
Woods chose Vanderbilt over Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Clemson and Georgia Tech. It was an unofficial trip to Nashville that helped put the Commodores on top for Woods.
“When I went up there for my visit, I was like … ‘Woah,’” Woods told 247Sports. “Coach Franklin came in a day early from his vacation just to see me, and I felt like it was home. You have the best of both worlds at Vanderbilt. You got a prestigious college in academics and you’re playing SEC football.”
Woods’ commitment helped Vanderbilt’s standing among SEC schools in the 2013 class. The Commodores moved up to No. 8 in the SEC – No. 18 overall – in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings.
Vanderbilt has 20 commitments for the class of 2013.
