The 2019 defensive back was surprised by Stanford, in a very good way.

“(The offer) came out of nowhere to be honest.”

Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) four-star safety Joshua Sanguinetti has close to 20 offers with most of the SEC and ACC vying for him.

The 2019 playmaker said the programs that most stick out to him currently are Miami, Ohio State, UCLA, Florida St, Florida, LSU and Stanford.

Sanguinetti is a student of the game, and he studies former LSU safety and current San Francisco 49er Rashard Robinson, Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore, who was a first round selection of the New Orleans Saints and Quincy Wilson of the Indianapolis Colts.

“I actually study a lot of defensive backs to work on my technique, get better and (learn) what drills to do,” Sanguinetti said. “

I want to work on everything to be the best player I can be.”

As a sophomore, Sanguinetti had three interceptions and brought in seven touchdowns as a receiver. Either way, he is using his 6-foot-2, 170-pound frame to make plays.

“I would describe myself as a long and a rangy defensive back because I have long arms.”

Between the impressive size, speed and game prep, there are few surprises for Sanguinetti, but Stanford caught him off-guard when they offered.

“It came out of nowhere to be honest,” Sanguinetti said.

The safety has spoken with defensive backs coach Duane Akina and likes the way the Cardinal use their secondary.

Sanguinetti is also a basketball player. His travel team goes all around the country, and he thinks that will help him if he decides to go to a school far away from Florida.

The safety plans to visit Tennessee and Ohio State before the season starts with the potential for more trips.
