Vanderbilt has its point guard for the future in five-star prospect Darius Garland, who announced he will join the Commodores’ 2018 class on Monday. A one-time UK target, Garland picked Vanderbilt over Indiana, Kentucky and UCLA.
Garland’s commitment is Bryce Drew’s first from a top-10 player at Vanderbilt, and he could add a second soon if Simi Shittu follows Garland’s lead. Together, they’ll be an enormous upgrade in talent for Drew’s squad, which is consistent with what’s been happening around the SEC as more and more young stars are joining the conference.
