Portland's Central Catholic High senior running back Cameron Scarlett announced his decision to attend Stanford on the Oregonian website Monday morning.
The 6-1, 210-pound running back helped lead the Rams to consecutive state titles, although Scarlett missed the championship game with a torn ACL. The Oregonian reported he will undergo surgery on Wednesday.
Scarlett rushed for 1,640 yards and 22 touchdowns despite missing a chunk of the season with the ACL injury and a hamstring problem.
Scarlett becomes the 12th athlete, and first running back, to give his verbal commitment to the Cardinal for next season.
Fullback Houston Heimuli, of Bountiful High in Utah, committed about a month ago.
Stanford also has three offensive linemen who have committed, including Jack Dreyer (6-8, 280) of Serra High in San Mateo.
Stanford grad Jed Lowrie, who played with the Oakland Athletics the past two seasons, agreed to a three-year contract with the Houston Astros on Monday.
Lowrie joins fellow Cardinal grads Jason Castro and Mark Appel in the Houston organization.
