Several heavy hitters from around the country have already stopped through the small town of Latta this spring to see him. Alabama, LSU, N.C. State, South Carolina, Clemson, Florida and Ohio State have made their rounds.

Clemson sent offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.

"I talk to him on the phone sometimes and when I go up there, I get a chance to talk to him," Stanley said in an interview with CUTigers at Latta High School.

The 6-foot-4, 312-pound rising junior is impressed with Caldwell.

"He's a fired up guy. I like him. I like his personality. I like his style of coaching," Stanley said.

Clemson, South Carolina, Alabama, N.C. State, Virginia Tech and Florida have offered.

The Gators offered while visiting Stanley earlier this month.

"I didn't even know they were coming. They offered me before practice, and then watched me practice a little bit," he said.

Clemson, South Carolina and N.C. State have hosted him for visits. He'll hit several camps this summer, but is still working on nailing down a schedule.

A decision could come as early as the end of his junior year.

"I want to get around everywhere before I make a decision," Stanley said.

What are the main factors he'll consider?

"A good school that wins games, good coaching-wise and a good education program for me."

He's already been selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American game.

"Because I'm so young, I didn't think I'd ever be here, right now. I'm still taking the recruiting process and enjoying it so far," Stanley said.
