"It was a long process but I'm happy with the decision I made," Stanback said. "I thought it was the best place for me, not just for the academics but because of the staff and players."
The coaching staff at Stanford is a big reason that Stanback will continue his basketball career in Palo Alto.
"They're all very genuine," he said. "You can tell they really care about their players. They all have good coaching experience, especially coach (Johnny) Dawkins."
Stanback hopes to make an early impact at Stanford.
"They think I can get minutes as a freshman as long as I work hard," Stanback said.
