FORT BEND BUSH COACH ALLEN ALDRIDGE
"Ronald has been a really great leader and a tremendous player for our program for the last four years.
"Vanderbilt is getting a really dynamic quarterback in Ronald Monroe, an athletic guy that can beat you in a number of ways. Ronald is a strong-armed, accurate passer. When things break down, he's very dangerous.
"Ronald has a very high football IQ. We played him at several defensive positions because of his grasp of the game and his athletic ability to make plays.
"Vanderbilt is getting a great player and outstanding person in this young man. We're extremely proud of what he has accomplished here."
Selected Vanderbilt over Washington State, TCU, Houston, BYU and Utah among others
