Card Class '15: Examining Stanford's offensive recruits

New, 1 comment

Who will be the playmakers and road graders for the offense in the future?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
Trent Irwin

Five Star | Wide Receiver | 6-2, 185 | Newhall, CA

Quick take: A tall, lanky, pass-catching machine. Irwin should have the size, speed and ball skills necessary to be the top wideout for the Cardinal in future seasons, and perhaps could be one of the best to come through Stanford.

Bryce Love

Four Star | Running Back | 5-10, 180 | Wake Forest, NC

Quick take: A speed demon with the ability to make defenders miss at every level. Adds some much-needed speed to this class, and should be frightening for defenses if David Shaw can put both him and Christian McCaffrey on the field together.

Cameron Scarlett

Four Star | Running Back | 6-1, 210 | Portland, OR

Quick take: Has the size to be a true power runner in the classic Stanford style. His feet are nimble through traffic with enough speed to hit the occasional home run. Recovering from an ACL tear last fall, so may be redshirted his freshman year.

Nick Wilson

Four Star | Offensive lineman | 6-3, 285 | Alpharetta, GA

247 Player Page | Twitter: @MiltonOL77

Quick take: A guard that looks and plays just like a Stanford guard should: tough, mean, and relentlessly physical. Will need to work on footwork a bit, but has the strength and agility to be the quintessential power pulling guard someday.

Brian Chaffin

Three Star | Offensive Lineman | 6-1, 286 | Charlotte, NC

247 Player Page | Twitter: @B_Chaffin65

Quick take: A true center who once again looks like a Stanford lineman through and through. Rated as a four star by some recruiting services, played in the Under Amour All-American game, and should be able to slide into the position naturally after Graham Shuler departs.

JJ Arcega-Whiteside

Three Star | Wide Reciever | 6-3, 208 | Roebuck, SC

247 Player Page | Twitter: @jjarcega_22

Quick take: A tall player who has no issues winning downfield and can make people miss - even though he doesn't appear to be the fastest player out there. An interesting prospect at the college level who somewhat reminds me of Francis Owusu.

Jack Dreyer

Three Star | Offensive Lineman | 6-8, 285 | San Mateo, CA

247 Player Page | Twitter: @Jack_H_Dreyer

Quick take: An absolutely massive tackle who provides some much-needed length on the edge for the O-line. Despite being so tall, looks comfortable moving in tight spaces. If he's fast enough off the ball, should be able to play and make an impact soon.

Reagan Williams

Three Star | Fullback/Tight End | 6-2, 235 | Jackson, OH

247 Player Page | Twitter: @RWilliams_6

Quick take: A hybrid fullback/tight end in the mold of Ryan Hewitt - and he looks like he could easily be as good as Hewitt. An absolute hammer at the high school level. If he shows he can handle the punishment of the position, he should be some reps in the backfield this fall.

-----

Austin Maihen

Three Star | Offensive Lineman | 6-5, 288 | Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

247 Player Page | Twitter: @AustinMaihen66

Quick take: A technically sound player who should provide some quality depth initially, but has the size to develop into a good swing tackle.

-----

Houston Heimuli

Three Star | Fullback | 5-11, 220 | Bountiful, UT

247 Player Page | Twitter: @HHeimuli

Quick take: Will serve a two year Mormon mission initially, but he's everything you'd want in a Stanford fullback. Squat, powerful, and constantly hunting for his man. He even runs Spider 2 Y Banana in his highlight reel.
