All Stanton has done during his high school career is win.
The junior gunslinger's most recent accomplishment was leading his Santa Margarita High School team to a 13-2 record and a California Interscholastic Federation Division 1 State Championship in 2011.
The dual threat quarterback currently only holds three offers from Air Force and Washington in addition to Cal but the Bears may have the upper edge thanks to an interesting connection Stanton, or rather his quarterback coach, has to the program.
According to recruiting expert Greg Biggins, Stanton's quarterback coach is former Bears signal caller, Nate Longshore. Biggins added that Longshore talks about the program often with Stanton, and the junior has significant interest in Cal after attending Junior Day in Berkeley.
Built like a linebacker at 6'2", 225 lbs, Stanton has drawn comparisons to former Florida Heisman Trophy Winner, Tim Tebow. Stanton surely produced like Tebow in 2011, throwing for 2,439 yards and running for another 1,528. All in all, Stanton accounted for 38 touchdowns.
His position at the next level could end up being safety instead of quarterback, but regardless, Stanton is a phenomenal talent who has a knack for winning. It is only a matter of time before his recruitment starts to hit its stride, but for now Cal appears to be in solid position.
