Ryan Johnson to Stanford: DE Recruit signs with the Cardinal

Johnson was a late verbal commitment but he officially joins #CardClass17

Oregon State v Stanford

4-Star defensive end Ryan Jonshon has submitted his letter of intent to the Stanford Cardinal today. Most experts assumed he would commit to the Auburn Tigers and stay in his home state. On Monday night, however, Johnson announced he would be going to Stanford and today his fax came in.

From: “Four-star defensive lineman Ryan Johnson picks Stanford

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.
