Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings has announced the signing of 6'10 forward Luke Kornet, of Argyle, Texas, to a National Letter of Intent. Kornet will be eligible to compete for the Commodores in the fall of 2013.
Kornet, who is the son of former Commodore great Frank Kornet, starred at Liberty Christian School, averaged 15 points, 7.2 rebounds and three blocked shots during his senior season and shot 44-percent from behind the three-point line and helped lead Liberty to a 33-7 mark. He was also named a Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools First Team All-State selection for his senior-year exploits.
"We're excited to have Luke join this year's class," said Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings. "He's a young man with an extremely bright future, and of course, an outstanding Vanderbilt pedigree. Both of his parents, Frank and Tracy, are excellent ambassadors for the university and we are thrilled to have them join our Commodore basketball family."
Kornet, who grew almost seven inches in his senior season, chose the Commodores over Kansas State, TCU, and Purdue. He joins 6'9 post player Damian Jones from Baton Rouge, La., as the two Vanderbilt signees in the 2013 class.
