Three-star Stanford linebacker commit Jordan Zumwalt (6-4, 220, 4.6) from Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison is having such a great senior season that his two local schools UCLA and USC are making a late run for the Cardinal commit.
"They're both (UCLA and USC) big time offers," Zumwalt said. "They are big time names. It feels good to have offers from both schools.
"I'm considering both offers and considering taking visits," Zumwalt said. "I would probably like to visit both schools.
Zumwalt is not worried at all about the possibility that Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh may leave for greener pastures. Even though Harbaugh's name has recently become a very hot topic when discussing possible coaching changes, but Stanford is trying to get his contract extension done.
"I'm not worried at all," Zumwalt said regarding the possibility of Harbaugh leaving. "I'm pretty sure he wants to be there for a long time.
If by chance Harbaugh does get snatched up by the NFL or another college program that could pose a problem for Zumwalt.
"I don't know," Zumwalt said when asked if Harbaugh does leave, Stanford would still be on solid footing. "If Coach Harbaugh leaves then his whole staff would probably leave and I like the whole coaching staff. They are all a good group of coaches."
When Zumwalt was asked his reasons that chose Stanford, when he made the decision back in May, he was quick with his response.
"Stanford," Zumwalt said. "Meaning it is Stanford. That's enough said right?"
Zumwalt was born and raised in Southern California and it should be no surprise that he is excelling on the gridiron as his father played at Arizona State and played in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders and the Atlanta Falcons.
No wonder there has been such a bowl run on Zumwalt in recent days. He's one of the reasons that Edison is a perfect 10-0 heading into the playoff as he has racked up 106 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two caused fumbles.
Zumwalt earned a spot on the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2010 landing as the Golden State's No. 56 prospect at any position.
