Stanford Intrigues Speedster Stanton Truitt

Stanton Truitt boasts 4.3 speed and an offer list the length of a small book. Tennessee even sent him 102 letters simultaneously. But Stanford is also in the mix for this Georgia defensive back. Listen on.

Bootleg Radio: ATH Stanton Truitt
Stanford is pursuing speedster Stanton Truitt, who runs a 4.3, for its future in the secondary. Much of the country is pursuing the Georgia native, including Tennessee: Butch Jones' staff made national news by simultaneously sending Truitt 102 letters.

Still, while a number of recruiting analysts believe the Volunteers to be in the lead for Truitt's services, The Farm is still a definite possibility -- at least if this Bootleg Radio interview is any indication:

"Coach [Lance] Anderson came down the week after, and he said, 'man, coach [Derek] Mason really loves you, he's talking about Stanton Truitt.' That just means a lot coming from a program like Stanford that isn't only academically well rounded, but also wins football games."
