The Commodores' 2009 class includes Parade Magazine prep All-American quarterback Charlie Goro (Park Ridge, Ill.).
In his senior year, Goro led Maine South Hawks to 8A state championship and first 14-0 record in school history. He completed 74 percent of passes (227 of 321) for 3,210 yards and 38 TDs.
Goro commented yesterday on his decision to attend Vanderbilt.
''I am excited and relieved [to have the recruiting process end],'' Goro told the Chicago Sun-Times. ''Everyone in my family is excited for me. My parents are very happy with my decision, especially with the great academics Vanderbilt provides.''
"It was exciting to see how well they played. And we have a great recruiting class coming in. I feel very confident with where the team is headed."
