Quarterback Commits to Nebraska’s Class of 2013
Johnny Stanton, a California quarterback, gave Nebraska his commitment today. He's rated a four-star prospect by 247 Sports and ESPN. Stanton had offers from Oregon, Wisconsin, California, Utah, and Washington, among others. Stanton is a sturdy 6'2" and 220 lbs. He's considered a dual-threat player who passed for over 2,400 yards and 13 touchdowns and rushed for over 1,500 yards with 25 touchdowns.
Stanton also played safety in high school, but it seems clear his future at Nebraska will be at quarterback. Stanton spent time working out with current Husker QB Taylor Martinez in California recently and the quarterback coach they share.
Stanton said he intends to help Nebraska recruit other players. Whether that pans out or not, the NU coaching staff has to be pleased to have landed a worthy quarterback for the class. And the Huskers may not have to worry about seeing him in a Badger uniform.
Stanton will have time to redshirt and then be in line to compete for the starting job in 2014 with four years of eligibility.
