Torrian Wilson to Stanford per Rivals profile

Submitted by MH20 on September 8th, 2009 at 7:54 PM

Per Torrian Wilson's Rivals profile, he has committed to Stanford as of today, listed as a solid verbal. I don't know if he's going to be taking his officials still, but obviously this sucks. He would have been a great get, and honestly I am surprised that he chose Stanford over The U (and us, of course).

He has "released" his Stanford scholarship offer to at least 3 recruits who were Stanford commits, so far this year. It always seemed to happen after a bigger name recruit made a verbal commitment to Stanford at the same position.

I always feel bad for recruits who were more committed to the school than the coaching staff was to them.

I don't know though. Our last two classes were stacked pretty thick. I mean, obviously you'd like 3 guys in every class that are good, but last year we got Taylor Lewan, who is hopefully thenext Jake Long, Michael Schofield who was a top 20 tackle, and quinton Washington, who was a top 10 guard. That's pretty decent. And the year before with Barnum, Mealer, Omameh, and Khoury, that's a pretty big O-line class.

I see that it is a big priority for next year, but no larger than it always is. And don't you think we'll land another guy or two in this class?

This sucks, but I doubt the race for him is over. If we put together a good season and Stanford sucks it up, I'm sure we will be back in it. Or at least I hope we'd get back in it.

The two listed on the board, Jackson and Schofield, are listed as "Sad Josh"- perhaps time to find at least one kid in-state. However, now that I look at the roster

We have quite a few young kids in the OL, didn't UM redshirt like 5 OL kids last season? Always sucks to lose a good recruit but no need to panic just yet.

Good catch for Harbaugh.

Cardinal are up and coming. I expect them to be in a bowl game this year. BIG swing game for that goal at Wake on Saturday.

It's pretty obvious why isn't it?

Jim: You see this bathroom? This is a $60,000 fucking bathroom. I not only shit excellence, I shit IN excellence.

Torrian: Where do I sign?

Eh, I'm less worried than I might be. Stanford has been clubbed over the head with decommitments this year. Something like five kids have decommitted. Courtney Avery decommitted. Louis Young decommitted twice. Lost in the idea that Harbaugh has been doing a great job of recruiting is that other coaches have been doing a great job of recruiting his recruits.

Was just thinking that we hadn't heard much about Torrian today.

I'll believe he committed to Stanford when I hear it from him, or it becomes common knowledge.

Why is everyone so pessimistic? It's obvious that we cooled off on him because the coaching staff probably saw that he wasn't good enough for Michigan.

his choice of Stanford means he is clearly serious about academics in addition to football. Maybe we are next on his list if he has second thoughts or reopens his recruitment for any reason.
