Rivals100 QB makes the call

Ryan burns 200 7 21
Stanford's first verbal commitment came from Doug Randolph, a four-star linebacker from Woodberry Forest School in Virginia.
The second commitment for the Cardinal is another four-star prospect from Virginia.
Stone Bridge quarterback Ryan Burns is visiting Stanford for the second time this weekend and he decided that he wants to join the Cardinal.
"I'm committed to Stanford," Burns confirmed on Saturday.
Burns' commitment is yet another sign that Stanford has established itself as a national recruiting power and he's the third commitment from Virginia in the past two classes, along with Randolph and four-star safety Alex Carter from last year's class, to choose the Cardinal.
What was it about Stanford that did it for Burns?
"This is my second trip out here and I fell in love with it the first time I was here last summer," he said. "This time really cemented it in my mind as the place for me.
"It's a great school academically. It's a great football program with a great coaching staff. Everything about Stanford is the perfect fit for me."
It's only natural to ask whether Andrew Luck's success was a big factor in Burns' decision.
"Not really," he replied. "I would have picked Stanford regardless of how the previous (quarterback) did, but I had a really good time meeting him last summer."
Stanford has been red hot with recruits of late and there are a lot of big-time offensive linemen that will be calling the school home. Was that the decisive factor for Burns?
"No," he said again. "It is a big bonus but I would have picked them regardless."
The 6-foot-5, 218-pound quarterback is the No. 47 player on the Rivals100, which means he's currently No. 2 in Virginia.
