KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Vanderbilt senior receiver Jordan Matthews is nearing the end of a remarkable career.
The Madison, Ala., native will go down as one of the best receivers in Vanderbilt history and many are bullish on his future in the NFL, as well.
He surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for the second season in a row with a 12-catch, 141-yard performance last week against Kentucky.
To say that he’s quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels‘ favorite target might be an understatement. They connect so often it sometimes seems like he’s the only target.
“I don’t see any weaknesses,” Carta-Samuels said. “His game is so complete. I see his speed, he’s got an unbelievable football IQ. His brain is unbelievable. He does a great job off the line of scrimmage. There’s not a knock on him. His strengths are endless to me.”
The Vols (4-6, 1-5 SEC) play Vanderbilt (6-4, 3-4) on Saturday at Neyland Stadium (TV: ESPN2, 7 p.m.)
