It’s been a busy, busy day for the Stanford Cardinal. They have sent out multiple offers to 2018 and 2019 targets on Tuesday. Let's take a look at some of the playmakers the Cardinal extended offers to:
Things started with 2019 defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux out of Los Angeles. The class of 2019 four-star recruit stands at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds. He holds offers from most of the Pac-12 and SEC and is one of the top recruits from the 2019 class.
2018 wide receiver Michael Wilson, who you will read more about later, received an offer from the Cardinal. When talking to Wilson, he said he has the ability to fit the Stanford offense in the passing and rushing game and takes a lot of pride in being an excellent blocker and setting up big runs for his running backs. The four-star receiver has 13 offers with multiple Pac-12 programs and Notre Dame giving him plenty of attention.
The 6-foot-1, 198-pound wide receiver and defensive back holds offers from Ohio State, UCLA, Texas A&M, TCU, and Oregon among others before adding the Cardinal into the fold. Whittington, who is in the 2019 class, fills multiple positions on his high school team as a quarterback in certain packages, running back and wide receiver.
Christopher Hinton Jr.
The 2019 lineman is very familiar with the Cardinal. He blocked for Stanford signee Davis Mills at Greater Atlanta Catholic last year. Hinton is also an impressive and athletic defensive lineman. Could he join elite 2017 tackles Foster Sarell and Walker Little in potentially blocking for his high school quarterback? The Cardinal will have to fight off Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Northwestern, Ohio State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech (and surely more to come).
DJ Turner II
The 2019 defensive back has seen his recruitment pick up in the last year with Louisville, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Penn State and Southern Mississippi offering. The Cardinal are next and he has the versatility to play multiple positions in the secondary.
The four-star 2018 safety from Arp, Texas stands tall at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and is a “big hit waiting to happen” according to Gabe Brooks. Programs like Alabama, Baylor, Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas and Texas A&M are vying for this talented safety and the Cardinal just threw their hat in the ring as well.
