Vanderbilt Football Recruiting: ‘Dores Earn Pair of Three-Star Commits Over Weekend


The Vanderbilt Commordors were not only successful on the field this weekend as they knocked off then 15th ranked Georgia, but they also garnered two commitments for their 2014 recruiting class.

Kameron Uter was the first to pledge to the Commodores on Sunday as he chose Vanderbilt over Cincinnati, Arkansas and Navy.

The 6-4, 205 pound wide receiver from Atlanta is rated as the No. 61 overall wide receiver in the nation and is a three-star prospect, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Uter will be able to come in to Nashville and provide an immediate down-field, deep ball threat as he looks to replace current Vandy star wideout Jordan Matthews.

Vanderbilt also struck gold on the defensive side of the ball on Sunday as they were able to reel in defensive back Amani Oruwariye as he chose Vandy over Arizona and Boston College.

Oruwariye is a three-star recruit in the 247Sports composite rankings and is listed as the 49th best cornerback in the nation.

The 6-1, 180 pound Florida native has the potential to play either cornerback or safety at the next level because of his natural instincts to play in the secondary. He has great length as well which allows him to play balls in the air and be able to get his hands on wide receivers and jam them at the line of scrimmage.

With the additions of Uter and Oruwariye, Vanderbilt now has 20 commitments overall in their 2014 class and holds the 25th best class in the nation and 11th best in the SEC, according to 247Sports.
