With Tennessee and Memphis targeting the same in-state recruits as Vanderbilt, it is tough for the Commodores to get the state’s top prospects to Nashville.
On Wednesday, Kevin Stallings picked up a big recruit, when point guard Kedren Johnson committed to Vanderbilt.
Johnson confirmed the news to me in a text message.
He is a 6-foot-4 Marshall County (Tenn.) product who can get to the rim using his strength and ball-handling ability. He has good size for his position, and can overpower smaller guards and finish with contact.
Johnson chose the Commodores over Louisville, Florida and Alabama.
