Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Recruiting 2014
Stanford will seek its third straight top 5 class

Quarterback: With Shane Williams on the roster, the need for QB is minimal for the Cardinal in this class. It's always a good policy to take one quarterback in every class, so Stanford may look for a less-heralded signal caller to provide depth. They're in touch with 3-star Huntington Beach QB Cornelius Drew (6'3, 230).

Running Back: When you're a power-run based football team like Stanford, there's never too many running backs on the roster, and there's always room for more. The number one target on the board for the Cardinal in 2014 is Monrovia product Will Brown. Brown is a bruiser at 6'1, 227 pounds, and will be heavily recruited, as he is the 7th-ranked running back in the country. Brown is reportedly enamoured with Stanford's offense, which has produced three 1000-yard rushers in the past two seasons.

Wide Receiver: Coach Brian Kudron has addressed the wideout position superbly in his first two classes at Stanford. There is only one senior on the roster (Jemari Roberts) along with only one junior (Ty Montgomery). After that, there are four true freshmen and two redshirt freshmen. Additionally, Kudron's vision of a plethora of jumbo-sized, physical pass catchers is coming to fruition. Redshirt freshman Terrance Bradford is the smallest wideout on the team in height (6'0) and second smallest in size (191). After him, there is Roberts (6'3, 213), Montgomery (6'2, 206), Willie Reed (6'2, 190), Ryan Mitchell (6'4, 221), Gary Harris (6'4, 220), Josh Lewis (6'5, 213), and Kevin Phillips (6'2, 202). With that said, there is always room on a roster for an electric playmaker, and Aaron Johnson of Thousand Oaks (CA) Oaks Christian fits that mold. The five-star receiver is a modest 5'11, 180 pounds, but he is perhaps the fastest high school player in America, drawing many, many comparisons to former Cal star DeSean Jackson. So while he doesn't fit the mold of the prototypical receiver Kudron looks for, he will be a prime Stanford target in 2014, and already has a tenative top four (in no order) of Stanford, Cal, Oregon, and Ohio State.

Tight End: The tight end is one of the most important pieces in Stanford's offense, and the Cardinal is loaded at the position this season with senior Zach Ertz, sophomore Kevin Jackson and redshirt freshmen Marcus Davenport and Jay Hicks. So the need is not severe, but if the right target were to come along, Stanford would be very interested. One intriguing prospect is three-star Marvin Moore of Chula Vista (CA) Eastlake. Moore is a towering prospect at 6'8, 230 pounds, definitely looking the part of a Stanford tight end.

Offensive Line: Stanford has developed a rich tradition of powerful, dominant offensive lines over the last few years, and the results have been fruitful in recruiting. That has allowed Coach Kudron to stockpile depth and hence be very selective moving forward. One slam dunk prospect is the top rated guard in the country, 5* James Garrett of Gonzaga Prep in Spokane (WA), alma mater of Stanford defensive end Charlie Hopkins. Garrett's top group is Stanford, Oregon, Washington and Boise State, and the fact that fellow Washington state product David DeCastro just concluded four years of stardom on Stanford's line has not been lost on him. Other prominent prospects include 4* Nick Cooper of Oxnard (CA) Santa Clara, 4* Fred Bailey of Redondo Beach (CA) Mira Costa, 4* Jarrett Green of Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha, and 4* Kyle Thompson of Chicago (IL) St. Rita.

Defensive Line: Stanford is always very careful in recruiting true defensive line prospects, as their 3-4 defense requires a different type of lineman. There is also not a huge need here, given recruiting success recently and the flexibility of players on the roster. Two notable prospects are 3* DE Walter Peterson of Thibodaux (LA) and 3* DT Danny Clark of San Jose (CA) Valley Christian.

Linebacker: One of the top priorities in this year's recruiting cycle for Stanford is to find an elite pass-rushing outside linebacker/standup end that is built for the 3-4, in the Chase Thomas/Blake Lueders mold. That makes Tucson (AZ) Palo Verde star Adrian Turner one of the most important prospects on the board for the Cardinal. Ranked as the 6th best outside linebacker in the country, Turner is another physical specimen at 6'7, 230 pounds, and appears to be a perfect fit for Stanford's scheme. The Cardinal has developed quite a following in Arizona, and that should be very beneficial in Turner's recruitment.

The need also exists for another hulking middle linebacker prospect, and Stanford is already in touch with the top three middle linebacker recruits in the country. At the top of that list is 4* Michael Ross of Cy-Creek High School in Houston, alma mater of Stanford left tackle Cameron Fleming. Coach Kudron has continued to build on Stanford's budding pipeline in Texas, having signed linebacker Matt Turner out of Dallas Skyline, punter Jermaine Rouse out of Eagle Pass, and cornerback Johnathan Cole out of Houston Cypress Ridge this past signing day, and nose tackle Chris Ham of Waxahachie and wideout Willie Reed of Fort Bliss the year before. Ross is the ideal size for the 3-4 at 6'3, 235 pounds.

Cornerback: Just as at wide receiver, Kudron has done a great job of recruiting to his ideals at the corner position, with many tall, physical corners now on the roster. And just as at wideout, a star prospect in the 2014 class may break the mold, as the 4th-ranked corner in the country, Devin Wilson of Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman has Stanford at the top of his list, and will be a priority for Stanford despite being smaller than what the Cardinal usually looks for at CB (5'11, 177 pounds). One other intriguing prospect is 3* TJ Gant of Long Beach Polytechnic.

Safety: While Stanford is hoping that Wayne Lyons and Devon Carrington restore the star power at safety this season, Coach Kudron's recruiting for jumbo-sized head hunters at the position will continue, and a trio of prospects have stood out early. At free safety, 6'3, 203-pound Greg Fisher of San Diego Cathedral Catholic looks like a perfect fit. The 4th-ranked free safety in the 2014 class has a top group that includes Stanford, USC, Utah, and Oregon. Meanwhile, promising prospects at strong safety include 4* Marquis Coley of Tukwila (WA) Foster and 3* Justin Hunter of San Jose Valley Christian. Coley is a lanky 6'3, 189, but is considered one of the best tackling safety prospects in America. However, Hunter may actually be higher on Stanford's board, as he is a monstrous 6'5, 225 pounds. Reports say Coach Kudron is evaluating to see if Hunter has the speed to play safety at the D-1 level, and that is the only reservation between him and a Stanford offer.

Putting the D back in Stanford
Lyons snags two interceptions as Cardinal rolls to open 2013

PALO ALTO, CA - Stanford's best remedy toward fixing last year's defensive issues may be the play keep away.

It worked to a charm against San Jose State on Saturday, as the Cardinal's offense held the ball almost three times as long as SJSU's while rumbling its way to 507 yards rushing and a 73-10 victory.

Anthony Wilkerson led the way with 188 yards rushing, while redshirt freshman Kevin Purcell made his Stanford debut with 21 second half carries for 157 yards. Remound Wright and Kelsey Young also made noise on the ground while finding the endzone.

"It was a pretty good opening game for our guys," a nonchalant Brian Kudron said afterwards. "We've always got things to work on, of course. Our pass defense still has to improve, even though San Jose State throws the ball a lot anyway. Offensively today was pretty well-rounded; hard to find many flaws when you put up 700 yards and 70 points. But teaching never stops. You can never be satisfied."

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Stanford was always the one for Brown
SoCal back kicks off 2014 class for the Cardinal

PALO ALTO, CA - Will Brown didn't see any reason to wait.

The 6'1, 227-pound running back from Monrovia High School in the San Gabriel Valley became the first member of Stanford's 2014 recruiting class Saturday, quickly jumping on the scholarship offer from Stanford coach Brian Kudron.

Ranked as the #7 RB and 54th best prospect overall in the class of 2014, Brown fits the prototypical mold of a Stanford running back, relying on brute force over elusiveness or breakaway speed. Brown checks in at #6 in the California state rankings.

Stanford Marches On
Defense is dominant as Nottingham fires on all cylinders

PALO ALTO, CA - After two games in 2012, something was obviously very wrong with Stanford's defense.

Two games into 2013, things look to be turning around.

Outside of a few hiccups, Stanford's defense lowered the hammer on Army's triple option attack, keeping the Black Knights to 85 yards rushing on 39 carries. That neutralized Army's offense as a whole and allowed the Cardinal to roll to a 46-3 win.

On offense, quarterback Brett Nottingham was lethal in his efficiency, completing 16 of 19 passes for 258 yards and three scores, while Anthony Wilkerson carried the load on the ground again with 157 yards and a pair of rushing touchdowns.

"I'm proud of our guys after these first two games," Brian Kudron said after the game. "It's still hard to tell what kind of team you have after just two games, but right now I'm happy with where we're at. Everything takes a step forward next week with conference play starting, so we've got to be up to the challenge."

One interesting item of note was senior left tackle Cameron Fleming being yanked from the game after committing three holding penalties in the first quarter. He was replaced by Kevin Kelly, the redshirt freshman from Anaheim Servite who, despite being a 3-star recruit out of high school, was the top lineman on Stanford's board in that cycle. Coach Kudron didn't comment when asked who would get the start at left tackle next week against San Diego State.
