ESPN 150 WR Cunningham picks Vandy
February, 6, 2013

The recruiting train at Vanderbilt kept chugging along Wednesday morning. Entering the day with a top-25 recruiting class, James Franklin added to it with a commitment from ESPN 150 wide receiver Jordan Cunningham (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School of Nova South), who picked the Commodores live on ESPNU.
Cunningham ranks as the No. 13 receiver nationally and 107th prospect overall. He's currently the only ESPN 150 member in Vandy's 2013 class, and has a chance to make an impact for the Commodores this fall. Jordan Matthews and Chris Boyd are returning, but Cunningham is a special talent, and the coaches will try to figure out a way to get him on the field.
You can never have too many playmakers in this conference, and to go into south Florida and nab a guy like Cunningham is a major win for Franklin and his coaches.
Here's a little portion of his ESPN scouting report:
"Cunningham is deceptive in everything he does. It's tough to gauge his ability to run by you. He has a long, lanky, wiry frame with layered muscle and room to add significant bulk and upper body strength. Speed is sneaky and more than adequate, but he may not be a true burner. Size/speed/body control combo make for legit vertical threat. He displays very good surge off the line and has quick feet to reach top speed quickly, especially given his size. Size and burst make for an imposing figure off the line."
