Stanford is still the clear leader for Dalton Schultz and the relationship between that coaching staff and the 2014 tight end is getting stronger.
The South Jordan (Utah) Bingham standout also said it's especially neat that Stanford is playing in the Rose Bowl.
"They were at the school a week ago and I have talked to coach (Lance) Anderson a little bit," Schultz said. "It's really cool they're playing there."

So far, Stanford, BYU, Cal, Colorado, Hawaii, Oklahoma and Utah have already offered Schultz, who said so much recruiting mail is coming in he's almost lost track.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pound four-star prospect said Florida, Florida State and Nebraska are three new programs that have reached out recently. Since it's still so early, Schultz said he's still open to hearing from all programs.
"I've just been getting letters," Schultz said. "I can't even begin to say.
"It's been everywhere really, some SEC schools, I've gotten some from some smaller schools. Florida sent a few. I just got a few from Florida State and Nebraska, some Pac-12 schools. We just put them in a big bin."
One of the top tight ends in the West, Schultz said he seriously considered attending the upcoming U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio but because of basketball season and other considerations, he decided not to go.
With a nice offer list already and many other programs showing interest, Schultz is content with where his recruitment is headed.
"We were going to one of the All-American combines, I think we were going to the one in Texas, but we decided we're not going anymore," Schultz said.
"We're fine with where things are at right now and where things are going and it involves me leaving right in the middle of basketball season, too."
