K.J. Carta-Samuels decided to commit to Vanderbilt early in the recruiting process but that doesn't mean other programs have stopped showing interest.
The 2014 pro-style quarterback from San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep said the same plan exists since the time he made his pledge - that he'll stay committed to the Commodores unless something drastic happens with the coaching staff.
Being so young and already having the decision done is nice for Carta-Samuels, arguably one of the top quarterbacks in the West next recruiting cycle.
"It's the same plan," Carta-Samuels said. "It's awesome. It's a breath of fresh air for sure."
The programs still recruiting the 2014 quarterback are from conferences across the country with Oregon, Utah, Stanford, Washington, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Missouri and San Diego State among those involved.
Since his commitment is solid, though, Carta-Samuels said he doesn't pay too much attention since he's happy with his pledge.
"I get a lot of mail from a lot of schools but I haven't had any direct contact with anyone," Carta-Samuels said. "It's mainly just letters to my school from a lot of universities."
Carta-Samuels committed to Vanderbilt this summer after an unofficial visit to the Nashville campus.
His brother, Austyn, plays for the Commodores and that played some role in his decision-making process.
