The Cardinal adds the elite tackle to an already impressive group.

Little was down to Stanford and Texas but ultimately pledged to the Cardinal.

Bellaire (Tex.) 5-star offensive tackle Walker Little committed to Stanford Friday morning, giving the Cardinal another elite pledge to a small but impressive class.


It was down to Stanford and Texas for the elite talent. The Army All-American is the #2 offensive tackle in the 2017 class. 

The 6-foot-8, 305-pound tackle joins quarterback Davis Mills as the second 5-star recruit of the Cardinal’s class. 

Here is what Gabe Brooks had to say when evaluating the newly-committed Little:

Little is an elite offensive tackle prospect who will have extensive high school starting experience once he reaches the Power Five conference level. Great size. Possesses height and length to add even more weight in college. Prototype offensive tackle build. Aggressive run-blocker who finishes his blocks. Plays through whistle. Impressive balance and foot quickness. Usually shows good knee-bend, but at times huge frame can compromise leverage/pad level. Must be ready to acclimate to a significant jump in competition going from private school football in Texas (a state ruled by public schools) to Power Five college level. Possesses very high ceiling as pass protector. Little is one of the nation's top offensive tackle prospects for the 2017 recruiting cycle. 

Little is the eighth Cardinal commit of the 2017 class.
