Independence WR talks Vanderbilt
"I've also been talking to Vanderbilt in spurts. They started contacting me in the spring and early summer. I'm hoping to build a good relationship with them as well."
Stribling split time in the Independence secondary with UT-bound Vic Wharton. He made 30 tackles and five pass deflections on the Eagles 9-4 2013 season which saw them fall to Hendersonville (36-35) in the Class 6A quarterfinals.
"We lost a few players but we'll still be good," Stribling said on his team's chances. "I've definitely improved my game in areas like covering, and playing more physically, more explosive."
James Franklin's Commodore staff did not heavily pursue Finis Stribling in the last recruiting cycle. Missouri was his lone SEC offer, although he received strong interest from Kentucky. Stribling, however, who'll only be a junior this season, could become more of a higher profile recruit than his brother at Independence.
"My dream school, right now, is Missouri," he said. "I'd love to be able to play with my brother again. I want to go to a school with coaches who will push you hard to get to the next level. I'm a high academic guy. Academics are special to me and will probably be the main factor in where I decide to go."
Stribling said he plans on being in Columbia on October 25th when the Tigers host Vanderbilt. The Commodores will be hoping to enact revenge for a 51-28 defeat a year ago in Nashville.
