Stanford football recruiting: Keller Chryst, Bobby Okereke, Nifae Lealao updates

The Stanford Cardinal could be on the verge of landing the best pro-style quarterback in the 2014 recruiting class.


Hometown product Keller Chryst (SB Nation profile here) could be very close to pulling the trigger on the Stanford Cardinal.

Oceanside (Ca.) athlète Alijah Holder committed to Stanford. Will his twin brother Mikah be next in line?

Fort Washington (Md.) cornerback Alameen Murphy didn't need much to convince him to become a Cardinal after camp.

Santa Ana (Calif.) Foothill linebacker Bobby Okereke got the Stanford offer he was looking for. Okereke has offers from Cal, Northwestern, Oregon, USC, Vanderbilt and Washington but the Cardinal have probably leapt near (if not to) the top of the list.

Sacramento (Ca.) Capital Christian School defensive end Nifae Lealao (SB Nation profile here) has Stanford way ahead of the rest of the pack, but no decision is coming soon. Lealao was one of the top performers at camp this past weekend.

Cedar Rapids (Ia.) Xavier athlete Matt Nelson can play tight end, defensive end or offensive tackle. Nelson is set to pick between Iowa, Notre Dame, or Stanford today.

Omaha (Ne.) Millard West defensive end Harrison Phillips picked up a Stanford offer, which might make him think hard between Stanford and Nebraska.

Charlotte (N.C) Providence offensive tackle Bentley Spain has a top three of North Carolina, South Carolina and Stanford.

Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic weak side defensive end/tight end Garrett Dickerson has a three team list that includes Stanford, Michigan and Northwestern. The Cardinal are probably the favorite.

Gilbert (Az.) Perry High defender Lane Veach camped with Stanford this past weekend and got a big offer from Stanford. The Cardinal should be huge favorites here.

2015 Bellflower (Ca.) St. John Bosco QB Josh Rosen also recently visited Stanford.

2015 Atlanta (Ga.) Woodward Academy athlete Arrington Farrar got the Stanford offer, and the Cardinal have had a lot of success luring players from Farrar's school to Palo Alto.

Mountlake Terrace (Wa.) running back Devante Downs likes Stanford more than Cal. A decision will be coming at the Army All-American Bowl.

Stanford junior day attendees include Atlanta (Ga.) Pace Academy safety and running back Denzel Franklin and 2015 Richmond (Va.) St. Christopher's cornerback Garrett Taylor.

Meridain (Ms.) safety C.J. Hampton received a Stanford offer, but is currently an Ole Miss commit.
