Stanford received a huge but expected verbal commitment from one of the best players in the Class of 2014, as quarterback Keller Chryst gave his pledge to the Cardinal on Friday.
Arguably the nation's top pro-style quarterback in the 2014 class, the 6-4, 220-pounder from Palo Alto High School (Palo Alto, CA) chose to play for David Shaw and Co. over offers from major programs such as Alabama, USC and Pittsburgh, where his uncle, Paul Chryst, is the head coach.
Chryst, who is the son of San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst, has good poise and possesses very good fundamentals. He becomes the seventh commitment for the Cardinal in the 2014 cycle.
The Under Armour All-American will participate in the Elite 11 quarterback camp this weekend in Oregon.
