NASHVILLE (WATE) -- Vanderbilt head football coach Bobby Johnson received 24 commitments for prospective players in the 2005 season.
Johnson said he filled his greatest needs at the offensive lineman, receiver and defensive secondary positions.
One of the offensive linemen he signed is the lone player from East Tennessee, Eric Hensley from Clinton. Hensley was a three-year starter for the Dragons and played in the Tennessee-Kentucky All-Star Game.
“I’m pleased with this class and I’m pleased with my staff in developing the class,” Johnson said in a university release. “We entered the process needing to stress particular positions affected by losses. At the same time, our staff wants to attract the most talented players available, regardless of position. I think we did a good job of accomplishing both goals.”
