Stanford scores again

As predicted last week by Pac10Recruiting, Stanford picks up another huge committal in Emeka Nnoli (6-1, 225, 4.6) from Sacramento (Calif.)
Natomas is rated by Rivals as the number one fullback prospect in the United States. Pac10Recruiting as the number 13 rated prospect at any position from the State of California.
With a resume may like Nnoli chose Stanford over other offers from Cal, USC and Washington.
Just a reminder of what Nnoli told Pac10Recruiting last week.
What is Nnoli looking for in a school?
“A great athletic program and a team that can win,” Nnoli said. “A good coaching staff and of course good academics are also key.”
Could there be a decision soon?
“Stanford is my favorite right now,” Nnoli said. “I sent in my application and if I’m accepted a commitment might follow.”
The scouting report on Nnoli is he is the complete football player who is also excellent in the classroom. Anyone who has ever tried to balance the two knows how difficult that can be.
Nnoli was selected all-state, all-city, all-conference and all-league as a junior after rushing for 1,720 yards and 24 touchdowns. On defense as a linebacker, Nnoli had approximately 55 tackles and he returned one fumble recovery for a touchdown.
Nnoli has an outstanding 330 pound bench and a 500 pound squat. He also has an outstanding 34-inch vertical jump.
In an earlier interview USC line coach Bob Davis who used to coach at Wisconsin told Natomas head coach Terry Stark that Nnoli reminds him of Ron Dayne when Dayne was in high school.
Nnoli was admitted by Stanford’s administrators and his commitment to the school and its football program followed shortly after.
Great get for the new Cardinal staff…
