Vanderbilt Football Recruiting: Brendan Brosnan Picks Commodores

On Thursday, 2014 offensive tackle Brendan Brosnan verbally committed to the Vanderbilt Commodores. Brosnan is a three-star recruit and is ranked as one of the Top 25 prospects from the state of Illinois.

The other teams that offered at Brosnan, but did not get his commitment were the Ball State Cardinals, Boston College Eagles, Central Michigan Chippewas, Illinois Fighting Illini, Maryland Terrapins, Miami (OH) RedHawks, North Carolina State Wolfpack, San Diego State Aztecs, Syracuse Orange, Toledo Rockets, Virginia Tech Hokies, and Western Michigan Broncos.

Its no surprise that Brendan Brosnan chose to commit to Vanderbilt because all ten recruiting experts on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball picked the Commodores as the team to land the Park Ridge, Illinois native.

Brosnan is a very nice pickup for the Vanderbilt Commodores.

At 6’6″, 275 pounds, Brosnan has the size and frame that Division I college programs look for in OTs, and he’s also athletic. On the flip side, his overall blocking ability is subpar, and his punch off the line of scrimmage leaves many scouts wanting more.

Brosnan’s commitment is No. 15 overall for the Commodores. They are ranked 23rd overall in the 247 Sports class rankings.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 22nd in the state of Illinois and 73rd among offensive tackles by 247Sports.
