What started as a bad day for Vanderbilt’s recruiting efforts ended as a good one.
Friday began with the Commodores losing a commitment from 3-star defensive back Adam Sparks before 4-star 2018 quarterback Allan Walters pledged his commitment to Vanderbilt. Finally, the day was capped off with a commitment from 3-star offensive lineman Cole Clemens.

The 3-star offensive tackle held seven offers, and chose the Commodores over Air Force, BYU, Virginia and Utah, among others.
The 6-foot-5, 286-pound recruit is ranked as the nation’s No. 96 offensive tackle and the state of Tennessee’s No. 16 overall prospect, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
The Commodores now hold 13 commitments in their 2017 class, including fellow 3-star offensive tackles Bryce Bailey and Grant Miller.
