Son Of Hall of Fame Running Back Barry Sanders Will Be Attending Stanford

Barry J. Sanders, the son of Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders, is reportedly going to commit to Stanford as his college of choice.  He has been playing for a high school team in Oklahoma City.  The Cowboys were in close competition with the Cardinals until recently.

Sanders has reportedly taken after his father in his shifty style of running.  This past year he had 1,324 yards with 27 touchdowns.  He had an incredible 9.5 yards per carry.

It's a recruiting boon for Stanford, who will most likely lose Andrew Luck in the coming NFL Draft.

It's also a recruiting coup for the Pac-12, which should be able to compete with the SEC shortly in conference domination.
