Signing day is usually in February - but this year, recruits got to treat their future coaching staffs to an early Christmas present.

The new early national signing day brought in 15 recruits for Stanford, with more to come in February. The class is currently ranked #50 by 247 Sports.

"Today we see a great start to the 2018 class," Shaw said in a statement. "This class has speed, size and athleticism. I'm grateful to all of these young men and their families for their efforts in the classroom and on the field to get us to the excitement of today."

Stanford continued its recruiting success of recent years in the south, grabbing three players from Georgia, two from Alabama, two from Texas, and one from North Carolina.

Stanford also pulled in four 4-star recruits, including QB Jack West from Alabama, one of the top ten quarterbacks in the country. The class has seven defensive players, and the top fullback recruit in the country as well.

The class also includes outside linebacker Tangaloa Kaufusi and wide receiver Simi Fehoko, who signed NLIs again after two-year LDS missions in Taiwan and South Korea, respectively.
