Five-star PG Darius Garland commits to Vanderbilt over Kentucky, Indiana, UCLA
Garland is rated the No. 10 player in the 2018 class and the No. 3 point guard in the country
"Me and my family had a long conversation a couple of weeks and they really wanted me to stay home," Garland told Scout. "Me and Bryce Drew had a long conversation and we've been knowing each other a while now since he's been at [a school in] Indiana. It was the best fit for me."
Garland is the highest rated prospect to ever commit to Vanderbilt. Class of 2009 guard John Jenkins previously held that honor, according to the 247Sports index.
Garland is the second verbal commitment for Bryce Drew in the 2018 class along with four-star small forward Aaron Nesmith. The Commodores' recruiting class currently ranks 30th nationally and fifth in the SEC, behind LSU, Florida, Kentucky and Arkansas.
