Stanford’s Tunnel Workers Union has now locked down its bookends of the future on the offensive line, after the nation’s premier offensive tackle Foster Sarell chose the Cardinal over Washington during Saturday’s Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
The Graham-Kapowsin (WA) High School five-star senior was thought to be leaning more towards staying in-state with coach Chris Petersen and the Huskies. However, Stanford has slowly gained traction as fellow Cardinal 2017 commits and Army All-Americans Davis Mills and Walker Little have been relentless in their personal recruiting efforts both this week and throughout the fall.
Sarell is the top uncommitted prospect remaining in the Recruiting Class of 2017, ranked No. 12 in the ESPN 300 and No. 2 overall player by 247Sports.
The Sarell-Little pairing should keep Stanford quarterbacks upright for the next three to four years. Both have the potential to start at opposite tackle positions as freshmen, a rarity in offensive coordinator Mike Bloomgren’s current system (most of them redshirt in their first year), against Rice on September 2.
