Verhoeven to Stanford

Stanford just landed a big commitment in 2012 with the addition of center Grant Verhoeven.

Stanford has scored a big addition to its 2012 recruiting class, as sources tell that 6-foot-8, 220-pound Visalia (Calif.) Central Valley Christian 2012 center Grant Verhoeven has given a verbal pledge to the Cardinal.

Verhoeven had previously narrowed his school list down to Stanford, California and St. Mary's, and took official visits to all three schools. On Wednesday afternoon, he informed the parties involved that he'll be attending Stanford.

The center has one of the best motors in the 2012 class, which gives him terrific rebounding range and allows him to score multiple easy baskets per game. He's strong, has a good frame and should be able to come into the Pac-12 and make an impact right away.

Verhoeven joins guard Christian Sanders in Stanford's 2012 recruiting class.
