Sweat talks Vanderbilt
"I really love the education at Vanderbilt. If you graduate from there, you'll be in great shape to land a promising job. With the great education, you also get to play at one of the top schools in the SEC.
Sweat says he was offered by Coach Bankins who seems to have made a significant impression on him.
It was great to receive the offer from Coach Bankins, the tight ends coach. He told me a lot about his history as a coach and the players he's put in the NFL."
Sweat received an offer from SEC East rival Florida on the same day the Commodores offered. He also has been offered by Buffalo, Cincinnati, Georgia State, Mississippi State, and Old Dominion. The list is quite an accomplishment for a player who sat out his entire junior season.
"I did play football in ninth and tenth grade but I was focusing on basketball as my main sport," he explained. "My offers have come from coaches seeing me perform this spring in practice. I catch the ball well, I've improved on my blocking ability, and can run. I play the Y in our offense. Sometimes I stay attached to the line and then sometimes I'll split out at receiver."
Sweet said coaches from schools like FSU, UGA, N.C. State, Michigan State, Missouri, and West Virginia among others have made trips to the Stephenson campus during spring ball.
Before Sweat committed, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest were among his top two. Sweat seems to truly value the top notch educational opportunities that Vandy offers.
"I love the education and the fact they're in the SEC. The coaches are new and building something special.. getting a good education is my top priority."
The Stephenson Jaguars, coached by Ronald Gartrell, played their annual inter-squad Blue and White game on Thursday, May 16th.
