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.
