Vandy lands in-state DB Herndon


Tre Herndon (Ooltewah, Tenn./East Hamilton), a 6-foot, 173-pound cornerback, has committed to sign with Vanderbilt, according to multiple reports.

Middle Tennessee, Northern Illinois, UAB, Memphis, Chattanooga and Appalachian State also extended scholarship offers to the rising senior. Cincinnati showed interest.

Herndon registered an electronically timed 4.65 40-yard dash, 4.44 20-yard shuttle, 32-inch vertical and 30-foot power throw this spring at a Nike combine.

Vanderbilt now has 12 pledges in its nationally-ranked 2014 recruiting class.
