K.J. Carta-Samuels has been committed to Vanderbilt since last summer and after a trip there recently the four-star quarterback is more firm than ever.
"I went to Vanderbilt a little before the Elite 11," Carta-Samuels said.
"It was really awesome. I got to see Mikale Wilbon, Jashon Robertson and a couple others. It was cool to talk to all the guys and we got to walk on the field together. The coaches had us talk and see what our future was going to be like.

"That was pretty exciting to see what we were getting ourselves involved with and then meet other prospects if they come there. It was a great trip and it reminded me how much I love the area and that's the school I want to go to."
The San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep prospect has a lot of connections to Vanderbilt since his brother plays quarterback there and Carta-Samuels committed soon after an unofficial visit there last year.
Everything seemed to fit for Carta-Samuels, rated as the No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, and he's not looking around at all.
The four-star said other programs have basically backed off - especially since he's been committed so long - and he's happy the attention has been limited.
"It's really been dead," Carta-Samuels said. "A lot of schools have backed off. I've been committed for almost a year now so it would take something major to happen. It's pretty much a done deal.
"I'm really happy. It's making my transition into college a lot easier rather than having it up in the air and not knowing where I'm going to go."
