Seffner (Fla.) Armwood is one of the top programs in all of Florida and fortunately for them they also have one of the smartest players around. That smart player is offensive guard William McBride and the 6-foot-3, 287-pound lineman has made up his mind.
"I committed to Stanford," McBride said. "They offered me about two weeks ago, and at that point, I had offers from every single school that I wanted to get an offer from. So I thought I might as well go ahead and make a decision. The more I thought about it, made sense for me to commit to Stanford.
"Stanford had been my No. 1 choice for a good while. It worked out great."
McBride, who is the son of former Florida governor candidate Bill McBride, committed to Cardinal assistant Nathaniel Hackett.
"He was definitely very, very excited," McBride said. "I was excited about it, too. Stanford has a great location, they have great academic standards, and I'm going to be playing in one of the best conferences in the nation. I'm going to be playing against Cal, USC and other great teams.
"I'm a competitor, and I want to play against the best. I like the challenge of facing USC every year."
McBride also had scholarship offers from Vanderbilt, Harvard, Princeton and Ole Miss. McBride and his team lost for the first time in two years last Friday night when it was beat by Tampa Hillsborough 21-20.
"That will be the one and only loss," McBride said.
