Coach Corbin Quote: “Kiambu is an extremely well liked and respected player in our program and has continued to develop as a leader in the locker room. He has taken advantage of his game opportunities, as well as his summer season opportunities to grow both defensively and offensively. His speed is above average, and his baseball instincts have really grown with more game experience. After leading his summer team to a league championship, he returned to campus with noticeably more baseball confidence. This has been his best fall since his time here at Vanderbilt. He will continue to compete as a role player on our team.”
