This is the time of year where teams are trying to fill out rosters before summer classes begin. We saw Alabama secure a much-needed quarterback when they flipped 3-star Arkansas State commit Layne Hatcher last week.
Now, it looks like Vanderbilt will follow a similar path.
Former Syracuse quarterback Mo Hasan, who played this past season for Coffeyville Community College, announced on Thursday that he had committed to the Commodores to finish his collegiate career. He made that announcement via his Twitter account.

It should be noted that Hasan was a preferred walk-on for the Orange. That doesn’t mean the addition isn’t extremely important, though.
Rising senior Kyle Shurmur, who threw for 2,823 yards and 26 TDs in 2017, will return as the starter. His backup from last season, Deuce Wallace, also returns.
The rest of the depth chart is a bit of a question mark, however.
Recent 3-star signee Allan Walters looks like he has a promising future ahead of him, but the coaching staff would prefer that he take a redshirt in 2018 to secure another year of eligibility once Shurmur is gone.
Adding Hasan will go a long way in ensuring that happens.
