Stanford picked up a four-star quarterback in Davis Mills, who comes from Norcross, GA. Mills is the eighth-best quarterback in the 2017 class and held nearly 20 offers from the likes of the Cardinal, Arizona State, Cal, Arkansas, Michigan, UCLA and Wisconsin.
The Cardinal get their fifth commit of the 2017 class
The quarterback can make plays with his arm and legs and analysts say he is a perfect fit for Stanford's offense. He is also evaluated as an accurate passer, plays at a good tempo and plays with poise.
The Cardinal seem to be sitting pretty at the quarterback position. Senior Ryan Burns and junior Keller Chryst have backed up Kevin Hogan and will get their chances at the starting job in 2016. Four-star 2016 signee and Army All-American K.J. Costello will also compete.
With a considerably smaller 2017 class than 2016's, which had 26 scholarship players, Mills checks off one more box on the recruiting checklist for Shaw and company.
Mills is the fifth verbal commit of the 2017 class, joining tight ends Colby Parkinson and Tucker Fisk, as well as athlete Sione Heimuli-Lund and safety Stuart Head.
