Shittu goes with Stanford


Stanford's big national signing day continued, as defensive tackle Aziz Shittu (Atwater, Calif./Buhach Colony) chose Stanford, the school he originally committed to early in the process. Shittu picked Stanford despite a late push by USC, which impressed Shittu on an official visit to Los Angeles two weeks ago. California and UCLA were also finalists for Shittu.

Shittu's announcement was the third win for Stanford over USC in afternoon commitments, with offensive linemen Andrus Peat (Tempe, Ariz./Corona del Sol) and Kyle Murphy (San Clemente, Calif./San Clemente) both going with Stanford over the Trojans.
