The Eagles now have verbal commitments from 14 players for the 2016 class thanks to the addition of Kindle Vildor from North Clayton High School.

Vildor stands 5'11", 161 pounds. The two-star prospect carried offers from Georgia State, Jacksonville State, Kennesaw State, Wyoming, Army, South Alabama and others in addition to Georgia Southern. He was named all-region as a sophomore and junior and was named Defensive MVP at the Cam Newton 7-on-7 in June.

A feature in the Clayton News Daily touts Vildor's leadership skills, academic honors and versatility:

"I love defense," Vildor said about his excitement during the drill. "It's so much fun to go out there and make plays on the defensive side of the ball. It's amazing what defense can do. For me, I feel like I'm capable of shutting down one side of the field. I want to make a big difference on our defense."


Judging by his body of work so far, there's no reason to doubt him. Vildor led the Eagles in tackles and interceptions last season. He was also lethal in the return game, accruing nearly 500 yards in kick and punt return situations.


He's also been a steady contributor for the North Clayton hoops team, providing a boost off the bench as the team's sixth man.

Vildor was a three-way player in high school, returning punts, playing wide receiver and cornerback and even lining up under center at times.

Watching Vildor's highlights you can almost hear Chris Berman saying "Whoop! Whoop!" when he's got the ball in his hands.

It's looking more and more like the Eagles' secondary, which has sometimes been a weakness, is set to become a strength in seasons to come.
