Three-star OT Dowling commits to Vandy 

December, 23, 2012
Vanderbilt was late getting into the game for three-star offensive tackle Sean Dowling (Fallbrook, Calif./Union), but the Commodores made up for it.

Dowling committed to Vandy on Saturday afternoon. Originally a UCLA commit, Dowling and the Bruins parted ways last week.

He didn’t have much of a chance to look in other directions because he wants to enroll early. And the combination of a being a program on the rise and a school with a great academic history was enough to sway Dowling to the Commodores.
