"I'm thinking about getting down to about ten schools probably next week. I feel like it's just time to narrow it down. It will help me focus more on just those schools," said the 4-star lineman to Big Red Report on Sunday. "It will probably be sometime next week, at the very latest the following week."
When asked if he knew any schools would who make the cut already, the soon to be senior indicated he would rather list all the schools at once.
"It will be the whole list when I put any of them out there."
This summer instead of hitting combines and camps like many college prospects, Stanley has been working with his team (and playing hoops). The 6-foot-7, 285 pound prospect doesn't after all need any more offers. Schools like Nebraska, USC, Arkansas, Notre Dame, Florida State, Oklahoma, Miami, and Auburn have all come to the table.
"I would say Nebraska is recruiting me just as hard as before, they are one of the hardest schools to recruit me at this point," said Stanley. "They talk about the school and the awards the lineman have been getting. They also stress how things are really family oriented and how it will be comfortable there.
"Coach Cotton is a great recruiter. He seems like a pretty good coach and is a really nice guy. He's very easy to talk to about anything."
Stanley says at this point he would like to narrow his list and possibly announce at a post-season All-Star game.
"The plan could change, right now it's just a guess I will make a decision then," said Scout.com's nationally ranked No. 14 tackle. "Right now I have been invited to the Marine All-Star game."
