The West's top athlete talks about where he could fit in with the Cardinal

Hint: It would be a similar role to a certain Heisman finalist.

BEAVERTON, ORE. - Kirkland (Wash.) Juanita athlete Salvon Ahmed had a very busy week at The Opening, starting with the announcement of his top-five and running a 4.32 40-yard dash during camp testing.

It's down to Notre Dame, Washington, Stanford, USC and Oregon for the four-star athlete. Ahmed is a star on both sides of the ball and could be a dynamic scorer on offense or a shutdown ballhawk in the secondary...or both. As far as Stanford goes, the coaches have told him they could see him assuming a role similar to Christian McCaffrey: scampering between the tackles, picking up chunks of yards at a time, catching balls out of the backfield, making an impact on special teams, the possibilities could be endless. It probably didn't hurt that McCaffrey was at The Opening as a guest coach. The Heisman finalist helped out with Team Hypercool featuring Michigan commit Dylan McCaffrey, Christian's younger brother.

Ahmed breaks down his final five schools as well as his timeline for making a decision.
