Another commit gains admittance

Upland, Calif., quarterback Josh Nunes became the fourth known prospect of the 2009 recruiting class to be admitted in Stanford.

"I just go notified the other day, I'm ecstatic about it," the 6-foot-3, 208-pound Nunes said. I'm very pumped up."

Nunes committed to Tennessee in June, but after an offer from the Cardinal he had a change of heart.

"Growing up, Stanford was always my number one school," Nunes said. "I always loved it for its uniqueness. Great academically and you get to play Division 1 football for a great coach like coach Harbaugh. And as soon as the opportunity came up for me there I jumped at the chance to take it."

Several things stood out for Nunes and his family when they made the decision to come to Palo Atlo.

"Football-wise, I love what coach Harbaugh is doing with the program," the quarterback said. "He is really turning it around. He has a great team on his hands right now, and things are really looking up for the football program.

"But also it is a great academic school. I pride myself on my academics, and just being able to get in there and everything the school has to offer definitely defines me and who I am. And I really like that about the place."

Nunes his enjoying a stellar senior season for Upland.

"We are undefeated right now, we have a really good team that is loaded with players. We have three guys on our defense that are going D1 and my running back is also going D1. We have real god team chemistry. We are 6-0 right now and have a real big game tomorrow (Friday)."

Nunes is one of the main parts of this unique and bonded class.

"I am coming for an official visit on January 9th," Nunes said. "I have been talking to Terrence (Stephens) quite a bit, he is a great guy. I've been talking to some of the other recruits and just getting to know them, will be future team mates. We have a great recruiting class coming in, I am really looking forward to getting out there."

The '09 class is shaping up as a great one for the Cardinal and Nunes wants to add to it.

"I've been recruiting for Stanford for quite awhile now. I am definitely out there hitting the trail," Nunes added.
