CARDINAL RECRUIT . . . Before the Stanford football team took the field for Monday's showdown with Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl, the Cardinal took another step toward solidifying its future by getting a verbal commit from one of the nation's top offensive guards. Brandon Fanaika, a 6-foot-3, 295-pounder from Pleasant Grove High in Utah, was the top uncommitted recruit in his state before putting Stanford down as his top choice. Fanaika was ranked No. 19 nationally at his position according to theBootleg.com. He is the second offensive guard to commit as Stanford looks to replacing veteran David DeCastro, who'll be leaving The Farm a year early for the NFL. Stanford has 16 recruits who have committed, six on offense. The highest-rated recruit is center Graham Shuler of Brentwood Academy in Brentwood, Tenn. The 6-5, 272-pounder ranks No. 4 nationally at his position and is a four-star recruit. The next-highest is outside linebacker Noor Davis from Leesburg High in Florida. The 6-4, 233-pounder is rated No. 9 at his position.
