Top California wide receiver commits to Stanford football


Hart High senior wide receiver Trenton Irwin will no doubt be forgiven for tweeting his football commitment to the "University of Stanford" on Tuesday.

Irwin (6-2, 190) will surely come to know more about Leland Stanford, Jr. when he joins the Foster Farms Bowl champion Cardinal in the fall.

The best thing about his commitment tweet? He used big, bold letters to announce it to his followers sometime after noon.

"i just committed to the university of Stanford"

The state all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards chose Stanford over Arizona State, where his high school quarterback, Brady White, is headed.

"Stanford is a great school and obviously they're always high in the Pac-12 -- they win championships," Irwin told "The coaches seem real cool and after football you can always have something to fall back on at Stanford because of the great academics."

White tweeted "congrats buddy!! Proud of you and all your hard work. Good luck at Stanford, I'll see you on the field the next few years."

In four years with the Indians, Irwin hauled in 285 passes for 5,272 yards and scored 57 touchdowns (61 total).

Irwin set the record in his final game, with 15 catches for 165 yards.

Irwin never really considered going anywhere outside of the Pac-12 Conference. He also showed some interest in California, USC and Oregon State.
