Former Vandy Commit Favors Auburn

Safety Malik Greaves from Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Fla., is focusing his recruitment on Auburn now that he’s no longer committed to Vanderbilt.

Greaves told 247Sports that he decommitted from Vanderbilt last week and plans to take an official visit to Auburn in the near future.

“Vanderbilt is a good program,” Greaves said. “From the staff to the players. I just feel that it would be a better situation for me at Auburn. They are a great academic school as well as Vandy, just with a more pro-style defensive system. Yeah, they fell off this season but that happens.”

Of course, as the season for Auburn (1-7, 0-6 SEC) continues to get worse, the future of Auburn coach Gene Chizik and his staff becomes more in doubt. And that could cause prospects like Greaves to question their interest in playing for the Tigers.

Safety Greaves Chooses Vanderbilt

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.”
