All-Access inside the war room on National Signing Day

Auburn significantly generated more enthusiasm from their fan base and kept recruits entertained throughout the year with their constant ALL-ACCESS youtubes.

It now appears Vanderbilt will follow a similar strategy by bringing fans and recruits closer to the program.

Vandy just released a well done ALL-ACCESS production that takes you inside the “War Room” on national signing day with James Franklin and his coaching staff.

Offensive quality control Charles Huff took the role of Roger Goodell by announcing each signature in the style of, “With the 8th pick, Vanderbilt University selects {signee}.”

After 4-star quarterback Lafonte Thourogood faxed it his National Letter of Intent, Vandy head coach James Franklin announced, “You don’t go into Virginia Beach and take a kid committed to Virginia Tech. He benches 410 pounds! Have you seen his arms?”

At one point, Franklin says on a phone call, “We got Baron Dixon decommited from Mississippi and committed to us. We got tight end Vanderwall decommitted from Arizona State and committed to us. We’ve been on fire lately.”

Regarding another recruit, quarterbacks coach Ricky Rahne said, “He put on a South Florida hat, took it off and put on a Vandy hat. There are picture of it. Yes, he did.”

You have to make your fans into believers. This is a good start by James Franklin and Vandy athletics.
