"Stanford offered Payton Hendrix," reported Bishop Dunne head football coach Michael Johnson immediately following. "Mason loved his film, but said he looked even better in person. Said he's a baller."
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound safety becomes the fourth Texas safety to nab a Stanford offer, following five-star Jamal Adams, four-star John Bonney, and four-star Brandon Simmons (who, in fact, committed over the weekend.)
"I was real happy," said Hendrix. "I know it's a big-time program, and they don't offer just anyone. I'm real glad they want me."
He noted, "They definitely have a chance. Any school, really. My options are still open. I haven't favored any school over the other… I'd like to visit, though. Maybe Nick and I could get out there together."
