Big one for Vandy: 4-star safety Brendon Harris, former Vols commit, flips to Commodores

Brendon Harris

Tennessee’s loss is Vanderbilt’s gain: Four-star safety Brendon Harris, formerly in line to join the Vols, has flipped to the Commodores.

Brendon Harris announced his commitment via Twitter on Tuesday night. Harris did not post a tweet, but updated his profile to describe himself as a “Vanderbilt University commit,” adding an “Anchor Down” emoji.

Harris made the call only three weeks after decommitting from Tennessee.

Harris (6 feet 0, 205 pounds), from Chattanooga (Tenn.) Baylor School, is one of the top 20 safeties nationally, one of the top 10 prospects in Tennessee and a national top-250 recruit.

Harris also had multiple other SEC offers, including Florida, LSU, Auburn, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss and South Carolina. National powers Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Penn State also offered.

Harris becomes the 15th commitment in the Commodores’ 2018 class and the third four-star prospect, joining inside linebacker Alston Orji from Rockwall (Texas) High and wide receiver Camron Johnson from Nashville Brentwood Academy.
