Kevin Palma got a late invite but still made it to Stanford's junior day and camp on Monday and he's happy he made the trip.
The Tulare (Calif.) Mission Oak linebacker raved about his trip to Stanford, the campus, the academic status of the school and the athletic program and is hopeful the Cardinal comes through with an offer soon.
"It's an amazing campus," Palma said. "It's huge. I liked everything about it. Academically, it's one of the strongest schools in the nation if not the world and they have a very strong football program with good facilities. Overall, it's a great place.
"They haven't really discussed an offer yet. They invited me last second after The Opening. I've been talking to a couple coaches and they have a camp that I'll be attending so hopefully I can get some good news about an offer."
Palma, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound three-star prospect, will cap off his busy summer with a trip to Gridiron Kings where he hopes to gain more exposure. The trip to Florida could get his name out there even more heading into his senior season.
"It's definitely going to be big," Palma said. "I can't wait to go out and represent my region and hopefully bring back another championship."
So far, Palma has received offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon State, San Diego State, UCLA and Utah State.
Because things are still picking up in his recruitment, Palma said he has not decided on any official visits yet.
Rivals.com rates him as the No. 30 inside linebacker in the 2013 class and No. 55 in the California state rankings.
