Rivals100 all-purpose back Brian Kimbrow of Memphis (Tenn.) East told Rivals.com on Monday night that Vanderbilt is his current leader but he wanted to make one thing clear:
He's in no hurry to pick a school.
"I've talked about it with my coach, and I'm going to wait until after I take a couple more visits before I make my decision," Kimbrow said.

To date, the 5-foot-9, 165-pounder, who ranks as the country's No. 80 prospect, has more than two dozen offers. He visited the Commodores with a few of his teammates last week. That was his "third or fourth time" to Vanderbilt, he said.
Why do the Commodores stand out right now?
"I've built a relationship with the coaches and some of the players," Kimbrow said. "They make me feel real comfortable being around them. [Head coach James Franklin] is real cool. I can talk to him about anything. I can be myself. I don't go by what the school has done in the past. I look at it like if I go there, I could turn the program around."
Who's next in the pecking order for Kimbrow?
"I would say Cincinnati," Kimbrow said. "No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 I don't know right now."
Next up for Kimbrow, a U.S. Army All-American, is a trip to Miami the first weekend in June. The Hurricanes have not yet offered, but Kimbrow is confident they will pull the trigger soon.
