Steve Tchiengang is headed to the SEC. The four-star forward from Montverde Academy (Fla.) verbally committed to Vanderbilt on Tuesday night. According to his new head coach Kevin Sutton, the 6-foot-8, 230-pound power forward was ready to end the long, drawn out recruiting process.

Can't believe UF missed on this one. Not every day UF is outrecruited by Vandy.

Sounds like a Vandy player. Their guys always have the weirdest names.

huh? i dont recall us recruiting him. is he a 2008 kid? if so our class should be done sooner than later and barring something huge changing things, we have a real good idea who that will be. doesn't take away from Vandy getting a very good player, just not sure where UF came into this.

No mention of Fla at all, I think someone is being very generous toward his weight, he doesn't look 230 or 225..

Vandy is loading up on talent. Stallings is building a monster in Cashville.......

Good pickup. This is a guy that a lot of people wanted, and I think I even remember Kentucky being linked to him a while ago, even though it didn't seem like we were too interested. Good pickup.

Stallings is recruiting like he wants to be around the top of the division. It seems like the frontcourt players may be more advanced than the backcourt players with what he's bringing in in a couple of years, which is odd, because I've never though of Vandy has a frontcourt, slow it down, pound it inside kind of offense.

I knew you couldn't make it through a whole Vandy related post without taking a jab.

Welcome Steve!! The man who will help us win #7 and #8 in a row over Kentucky!

RB is right, Stallings is doing a good job of getting more talent there and they may soon have the deepest Vandy team I can remember at least in a while.

a litte more on Steve...

profile from the T-Mac all-stars page

http://www.3stripebasketball.com/allstars/profiles/Tchiengang.cfm

ESPN has him as the number 55 prospect overall in their 2008 rankings.

Looking at his video, he seems to have a great shooting touch that extends out to behind the arc...

Now we need to land Lance Goulbourne and we'll be set. He visits this weekend.

Yeah, I REALLY hope Goulbourne commits. The Tchiengang/Goulbourne combo would be ridiculous. His top choices are Vandy and UVA. Hopefully, he makes the right choice and comes home to Vandy.

Good grief. Stop being so sensitive about stuff. There was no jab thrown at Vandy. It seems like it would be a compliment to get a committ from a player that other programs had some interest in. Get over yourself, Chuck.

Leave that crap for someone on your level. Don't make this about Chuck vs kentubby, but instead "Vanderbilt Lands a Big-Time Recruit."... you know the title of the thread.

Yeah, Stallings is doing a great job.

Now we need to turn this talent into Elite 8's, Final 4's. I know we can.
