Here's a picture of Pope John Paul II tailback Wesley Tate signing on the dotted line to play for Vanderbilt next season. Tate averaged 6.1 yards per rush while producing 3,045 career rushing yards and 42 TDs during his prep career.

"Wesley is a prototypical SEC tailback," said Jeff Brothers, Tate's high school coach. "He gives them (Vanderbilt) a very powerful running back, an explosive, downhill runner. When teams played us, Wesley was our marquee player on offense.

"Wesley is also a young man of the highest character, very coachable, and willing to do anything and everything to help the team succeed."
