NSD News, Part 1 - A busy day at Vanderbilt

Three grad transfers connected to the Commodores today, including two of the Ivy League's best.

Louis Vecchio is taking a graduate transfer to Vandy from Penn. He was a two-time All-Ivy League performer on the defensive line and is getting a degree from their prestigious business school this spring. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Meanwhile, All-Ivy League punter Parker Thome is moving to Vanderbilt as a grad transfer from Columbia.  Thome will likely fill a huge need on special teams for the 2018 season. He will also have one year of eligibility.

Finally, Shawn Stankavage is leaving Vanderbilt to play college football at Rice. Stankavage will have a year to play for Rice, which has a new coaching staff. He only completed one pass in his career for the Commodores, which was plagued by injuries.
