Vanderbilt Reaches Deal on Extension, Salary Increase for James Franklin
Sources tell OKTC that five-star quarterback Gunner Kiel, a mid-term enrollee who made an unofficial visit to Vandy's campus with his parents last week, will be making an official visit with his parents this coming weekend. A second visit is an impressive coup for Franklin since it means Vanderbilt will figure prominently in Kiel's decision. Vanderbilt's second semester begins on January 9th so Kiel will have less than a month to decide if Vanderbilt will be his college choice. If Vanderbilt got Kiel, he would become the school's first five-star commit in football history.
Already, Vanderbilt's seniors have achieved a first. "The seniors are all very excited," Williams said, "because they are the first class in Vandy history to play in two bowl games."
