Barry Sanders, Jr chooses Stanford over other schools, namely Oklahoma State, where his legendary father won a Heisman trophy and is a college football legend.

After Sanders produced the nice TD run in the Army All-American All-Star game for a collection of some of the best high school football players in the nation, he delivered a bit of a surprising declaration to the Cardinal.

The game held Sanders announcement out until the fourth quarter. They knew his announcement was the most anticipated, with the nation's number one player, Dorial Green-Beckham not set to make his announcement today.

With his father and mother at his side, the younger Sanders made his intentions known.

It may come as a shock to many, but it is vintage Sanders' family. This was a decision about being a student-athlete, and being comfortable.

The Cardinal has landed one of the nation's top recruits.
