Four-star receiver Jordan Cunningham from Fort Lauderdale has announced he’ll be heading to Vanderbilt over Florida State, Miami and Stanford. The 6-3 Cunningham is widely considered to be one of the 20 best receivers in the nation.
Kudos to James Franklin and his ability to sell Vandy as more than just a football program. Cunningham announced that he’s working on “a 50-year plan” that includes playing receiver in college and then becoming a professional engineer and entrepreneur. “Football’s going to end at some point and you have to have a backup plan,” Cunningham said.
While Cunningham seemed a little nervous during his presser, it’s clear the young man is very intelligent and has a great deal of perspective for his age. Thumbs up to Cunningham and to Vanderbilt.
