Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat has won several awards including the Gundelach Award (most outstanding Junior at Stanford) and the Morris Trophy (most outstanding offensive or defensive lineman in the PAC 12) as well as several All-America honors.
From the Stanford Athletic Department
"Andrus Peat is one of two winners of the 35th annual Morris Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding offensive and defensive linemen in the Pac-12 Conference."
" Four Stanford student-athletes earned SI.com All-America honors, as announced Tuesday. Andrus Peat headlined the group with his first-team selection.
Senior strong safety Jordan Richards, senior wide receiver/kick returner Ty Montgomery and fifth-year senior defensive end Henry Anderson all earned honorable mention nods.
For Peat, the accolade continues a busy stretch for the left tackle from Chandler, Ariz., earning his fifth postseason honor. He also earned first team All-America honors from ESPN.com while garnering second team accolades from the Associated Press, CBS Sports and the Walter Camp Foundation."

Given all of these well-earned accolades it should come as no surprise that Andrus Peat is considering leaving Stanford early to enter the NFL draft. Mercury News is reporting that Peat has submitted paperwork to the NFL draft advisory board.
"Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat and cornerback Alex Carter have submitted paperwork to the NFL's draft advisory board and are considering leaving school in the spring."
Congratulations to Andrus Peat
