Jacob Sealand was closing in on 20 scholarship offers, but he already had the one he needed. Vanderbilt is the school Sealand committed to on Sunday.

"I'm proud to be a Commordore," Jacob Sealand told Scout Sunday afternoon. "Vanderbilt was the best fit for me and it really will set me up well in the long run."

"I kind of made my mind up last week and I knew it was the best option for me. They have a world class education, I think Coach Franklin can lead us to big wins, and I want to be part of the class that helps turn Vanderbilt around."

Sealand chose the Commordores over North Carolina, Purdue, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest in the end. His decision appears to be final.

"I am a man of my word and if I say something, I mean it. My commitment is rock solid and my word is my bond. I am not going back on my commitment."

The Tucker linebacker is currently 6-feet, 1-inch tall and 220 pounds.

Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
