The Stanford Cardinal football program has already produced a powerful running back in the NFL in Toby Gerhart. On Friday, they may have received their next Heisman Trophy candidate. This comes in the form of a commitment by three star running back Beau Bisharat.
According to College Spun, Bisharat announced the commitment via Twitter.
Bisharat is the eighteenth ranked running back in the class of 2016. The Carmichael, California native committed to the Cardinal over Pac 12 opponents Oregon, Cal, Arizona, and Arizona State as well as Michigan State among others.
The 2016 freshman will certainly help the Cardinal keep their running game stay atop of the division. With Bisharat, the Cardinal will continue to build their offense as well as their kickoff and punt return game.
