Ripley rising senior QB Tristan Vandiver is taking a weekend trip to Vanderbilt this weekend for Junior Day.
The junior signal caller has visited with Southern Miss, Eastern Kentucky and UAB already this offseason.
Vandiver was a Tippah County Sports honorable mention all county player this season.
The 6’1″ 200 pound QB boasts a 4.0 GPA and a 25 ACT score. His academic accomplishments as well as his work on the field have caught the eye of a few top tier academic football programs.
Included in those programs are a pair of Ivy League teams.
“Columbia probably has contacted me the most. Them and Princeton,” Vandiver told us.
In state, Delta State and Southern Miss have expressed interest, according to Vandiver.
