Kanoff changes course

North Hollywood (Calif.) quarterback Chad Kanoff will not be a Commodore after all. Despite signing a national letter of intent with Vanderbilt on Signing Day, the three-star prospect out of Harvard-Westlake High has chosen to continue his education at Princeton University.

Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin confirmed the move with VandySports.com on Saturday.

"We found out about it last night. We wish him all the best in the future."

The 6-foot-3 standout committed to Vanderbilt on May 28th of last year after a recruitment that started shortly after his sophomore year when he made the trek to Nashville to perform in front of the Commodore staff at one of the program's summer camps.

Kanoff stuck with his commitment throughout the process despite the push from his family that he should show more interest in potential Ivy League suitors.

Ivy League schools, as well as military academies, do not participate in the National Letter of Intent program, so Kanoff is free to enroll at Princeton without any eligibility penalty.

Kanoff released a statement through Harvard-Westlake about his change of plans.

"Vanderbilt is a great school, with a strong football program, and a terrific coaching staff, and I'm grateful for the opportunity that was offered to me. However, after thoroughly thinking it through, I believe that Princeton is the best fit for me as a student-athlete."

Rivals250 quarterback signee Johnathon McCrary enrolled at Vanderbilt in January and is currently practicing with the Commodore football team.
