Scout's Take: DT Dalyn Wade-Perry to Stanford

Stanford's small but high-quality 2017 class gained its first defensive lineman Sunday with the addition of Dalyn Wade-Perry. Here's how the 6-foot-3, 335-pound ESPN 300 DT fits into the mix:What he brings: Wade-Perry is a big body with very good playing strength and good first-step.

Ranking the Pac-12's bowl games

The Rose Bowl, featuring USC vs. Penn State, was a high-drama, high-scoring affair that rates among the best of the season.

Erik McKinney ESPN Staff Writer 

It was a huge day for the Pac-12 on the recruiting trail, as the conference added five prospects during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The headliner was No. 12 overall prospect, offensive tackle Foster Sarell, who committed to Stanford. UCLA grabbed a commitment from No. 39 overall prospect, cornerback Darnay Holmes. Safety Bubba Bolden, the nation's No. 139 overall prospect, announced his commitment to USC. Arizona State landed running back Eno Benjamin, the nation's No. 280 prospect, while Oregon State received a commitment from three-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin.

The rich keep getting richer when it comes to Pac-12 offensive line recruiting, as Stanford received a commitment from the nation's No. 12 overall prospect, offensive tackle Foster Sarell. Stanford was seemingly in front from beginning to end for Sarell, though Nebraska, Notre Dame, USC and especially the hometown Washington Huskies all recruited him hard. This is a huge win for Stanford, which will pair him with Walker Little in bringing in two elite offensive tackle prospects in this class. For Washington, it's definitely a blow, as Chris Petersen and staff have done a tremendous job keeping in-state prospects home, though Stanford and its offensive line pedigree proved too much in this battle.
