With National Signing Day two weeks away, Stanford has commitments from seven four-star recruits, according to Rivals.com. As Hank from Go Mighty Card alerted me, one of those recruits, Wayne Lyons, has adopted this site's logo as his Twitter avatar. Lyons committed to Stanford during last week's U.S. Army All-America Bowl. You can follow him @WLyons21. Defensive backs coach Derek Mason recruited Lyons and is expected to be a part of new head coach David Shaw's staff. Cardinal Report tweeted earlier this week that Pep Hamilton was promoted to offensive coordinator and that Brian Polian is also likely to return.
Owen Marecic and Sione Fua are among the 13 Pac-10 players who will participate in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 29 in Mobile, Alabama. | GoStanford.com
