Stanford football lands one of top prep linebackers

 

Noor Davis could have gone anywhere. He choose Stanford.

Davis surprised a lot people when he named the Cardinal as his choice of schools.

A four-star recruit listed by Scout as the nation's No. 7 outside linebacker, Villages Charter (Florida) High's Davis made his choice public in an announcement at his high school Friday.

Davis picked the Cardinal over reported offers from Florida, USC, Notre Dame and Alabama (his top 5), as well as Auburn, Miami, UCLA, Tennessee, LSU, and Oklahoma, among many others.

Davis is Stanford's third commitment in its 2012 class, and possibly its highest profile yet.

Pretend its 2015 and Noor has just graduated from college. He's not playing football, he's looking for a job. Do you think he has a better chance at a great career if he graduates from Alabama, Oklahoma or Stanford.

Seems like an easy choice to me.
