Jesuit High School stand out Linebacker Joey Alfieri is done with his recruitment. Tonight he tweeted his decision and without any fanfare it was over. The #1 Linebacker in the Region is off the board. And even with the Oregon Ducks pressing their case the last few days joining up to 15 colleges that offered the 6’4″ – 230 lb. phenom it was just too little too late.
“Thank you to all who have supported me throughout this process, and it feels great to say I’ve officially committed to Stanford University!” Joey Alfieri – Twitter
He joins Isaiah Brandt-Sims of Wenatchee, Washington in the pledge to The Cardinal for next year. This folks is a powerful 1-2 Punch. Alfieri finished in the Top 8 SPARQ scores in the Nation and was a stand out at The Opening! His ability to run, move laterally, and close out plays is off the charts. Brandt-Sims is one of the Top 25 Athletes in the Nation on most lists.
The decision was noted by Stanford Head Coach David Shaw on the Twitter-Sphere.
“A good day just keeps getting better! #gostanford“
Joey was quoted as saying that the Stanford program sold him some time ago and that he is glad to have it over with! More to follow on Joey Alfieri who we covered long before anyone else having seen him play and rise up as an underclassmen on the football field these past two years!
Way to go Joey!
