Offensive lineman Joshua Garnett (Puyallup, Wash./Puyallup) decided he would take his considerable talent to Stanford, picking the Cardinal in a tight race over Michigan.

"It was close, but I just felt Stanford was the best overall fit for me," Garnett said. "I've been up to Stanford several times, and it just always felt like home to me. They have the best combination of academics and football in the country, and I really love everything about the place.

“I already know a lot of the players on the team and the recruiting class coming in is strong. I'm close with the coaching staff and especially Coach [Mike] Bloomgren, the offensive line coach, and Randy Hart, who recruits my area.
