Vanderbilt has put together quite a class of defensive backs for the 2014 recruiting period and the Commodores added to the group on Sunday night when Tampa area corner Amani Oruwariye officially committed to the staff.
Oruwariye confirmed the decision with VandySports.com via text after making an announcement on Twitter.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound three-star prospect out of Gaither High had been a target of the Commodores since the early spring.
Oruwariye was a part of a group that visited Vanderbilt for a weekend over the summer. That group also included fellow Vanderbilt commitment Kyle Gibson and 2015 target Byron Cowart out of Armwood.
A skilled athlete, Oruwariye saw his recruitment pickup steam over the summer, collecting offers from other programs such as Boston College, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Louisville, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Rutgers, Syracuse, USF, UCF, Virginia and Wake Forest.
The standout has registered 23 tackles, an interception, five pass breakups and blocked three punts so far this fall for the Cowboys. He's also caught a touchdown pass.
Oruwariye is currently ranked 61st among all corners by Rivals.com and 92nd overall in the Rivals Florida Preseason rankings.
Vanderbilt also picked up a commitment from Atlanta area wide receiver Kameron Uter. The Commodores now have 20 public verbal commitments for the 2014 class.
