Four-star defensive lineman Ryan Johnson picks Stanford

#CardClass17 keeps stocking up

247 Sports

It was a good Monday for Stanford recruiting - after picking up a commitment from Connor Wedington in the morning, 4-star defensive end Ryan Johnson picked the Cardinal at night.

Johnson, a native of Mobile, Alabama, chose the Cardinal over nearby Auburn, and gave Stanford its 9th four- or five- star recruit in the 2017 class.

Recruiting experts thought Johnson was more likely to sign with Auburn, but an official visit to Stanford on January 14 may have been the deciding factor for David Shaw’s squad.

247 ranks Johnson as the 7th-best strongside defensive end in the country and the 223rd best player in the nation.
