From "Early preview of Stanford's quarterback competition":
"Serving as the primary backup last year, all signs indicate Chryst will be the next quarterback to follow Hogan's footsteps. After throwing eighty five touchdowns in high school, Keller Chryst was no doubt Stanford's highest ranked quarterback recruit ever. Chryst was a four star on every recruiting service and ranked as high as the nation's second best pro-style quarterback. The redshirt sophomore has the size and strength to be an NFL quarterback; Chryst is 6'5" and weighs 237 lbs, and according to Tom Fitzgerald of the San Francisco Chronicle, he can throw the ball roughly 70 yards. Also, Chryst comes from a football family. His dad is the offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers while his uncle is the head coach for Wisconsin.
On the field last year, Chryst showed promise after throwing four for four against Arizona for 39 yards and a touchdown. Chryst even showed his physicality after an awesome block against an Arizona defender while blocking for Christian McCaffery. If Chryst can adapt the knowledge of his family, he can pair it with his size to become a serious threat for defenses."
