Reid impressed by Vanderbilt

Albert Reid took an official visit to Vanderbilt over the weekend and the Commodores seem to have helped their standing with him.

The West Virginia commit and senior athlete from Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy took an official to Nashville over the past couple of days.

While the Commodores didn't have a game Reid did get to spend time with a football team that's preparing for the postseason. That's something James Franklin and his staff are sure to sell to recruits, as Vanderbilt hasn't been able to say that too often over the years.

"It went good," Reid said. "They gave us a tour of the campus and we met with the coaches. I met with the running back coach and everyone.

"I liked to see that they run the ball. That's what I really like. They mostly run a two-back offense but sometimes they're in a single-back. They're a downhill running team."

Freshman quarterback Josh Grady was Reid's host for the weekend. Reid enjoyed his time with Grady and all of the other Vanderbilt players.

"They're real cool. They'll tell you like it is. They're real honest with you," he said. "They make you feel like family."

Reid said he might take more official visits but he doesn't have anything planned.

"I'm just going to wait it out for a while. I'm still committed to West Virginia. It's the same as when I committed. I'm just making sure I made the right decision."
