Best Decision of My Life

After all of speculation and all of the offers from different schools at different positions Devon Cajuste will get to continue his career playing wide receiver for Stanford over the next several years as he made his verbal commitment there on Tuesday evening.

Devon Cajuste, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound wide receiver from Holy Cross High School in Flushing, N.Y., went to Stanford for junior day on Tuesday and decided that Palo Alto was the place for him.

"I just committed to Stanford after the junior day today," Cajuste stated. "I told Coach Greg Roman first and then talked Coach Jim Harbaugh afterward and he said I definitely made his day. He just asked if I got my Dad's blessing and then gave me a big hug and welcomed me to the family and it was just a really, really exciting moment. My Mom cried like three times and my Dad is really excited, so we're all really happy out here."

"I got this feel of welcome when I got here and it's just so peaceful and calm here," Cajuste explained. "Everything is very go with the flow here and there is a tradition, an honor and enlightenment here. I feel like it's a privilege to get to walk on the campus here and it's even more of an honor to get to go to such a prestigious school that so many kids work so hard to get into every year. I'm just very humbled and honored by the experience and I'm still taking it all in right now."

"I just know that the decision I just made was probably the best decision of my life and the first of many more that I'll be making upwards as I go forward."

As a junior, Cajuste caught 40 passes for 921 yards and seven touchdowns. He also competes in track and field where he runs the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes and participates in the high jump and javelin. His personal best in the high jump in 6-foot-2.
