Has everyone exhaled following an epic signing day? Good, now it's time to start looking ahead to the 2013 recruiting class.
Even before Isaac Savaiinaea (Honolulu, Ha.) had a breakout performance at the Nike Football SPARQ Combine in Honolulu last month, the 6-3, 231-pound inside linebacker already had a Stanford offer, writes ESPN's Mitch Sherman. Said Savaiinaea:
I’ve been getting more [media] attention, but it’s been pretty much the same with attention from the schools. They’re all great schools. Stanford is really the one that stands out for me, but I’m going to wait for more offers to come in.
To go with his Stanford offer, Savaiinaea has offers from Arizona, Colorado and Hawaii. He attends the Punahou School, the same school as 2012 Stanford commit, defensive end Luke Kaumatule.
In other Stanford recruiting news:
Stanford and USC might be headed for another signing day showdown like they had earlier this month. The Trojans offered cornerback Johnny Johnson (Fresno, Calif.) to go with a Stanford offer, writes ESPN's Erik McKinney.
Tight end Durham Smythe (Belton, Texas) has scheduled a trip to Stanford, according to ESPN's William Wilkerson.
Head coach David Shaw said it was "safe to assume" that quarterback would be a priority for the 2013 class. ESPN's Damon Sayles reports that Stanford has shown some "major" interest
in Kansas City, Mo., quarterback Trent Hosick.
Here's a nice read on Doug Randolph (Woodberry Forest, Va.), Stanford's lone commit so far from the 2013 class.
