Stanford and Cal both had strong classes on National Signing Day.
Another National Signing Day is now in the books, and the Bay Area came out looking pretty good. Both Cal and Stanford brought in a nice amount of four-star prospects, though neither school landed a five-star prospect this time around.
Stanford came out with a 12-man class, four of which were four-star prospects. Those prospects were quarterback Ryan Burns, wide receiver Francis Owusu, defensive back Sean Barton and linebacker Peter Kalambayi.
In all, Stanford's day was a bit lacking in comparison to 2011, when they had a monster class that ranked among the top in the nation. This could still end up being a productive class in the end, though, and 2014 is shaping up well for the team.
SB Nation's Stanford blog, Rule of Tree, took an early look at the class here.
Cal fared much better than Stanford, it seems. They pulled in 25 recruits, six of which were rated as four-star prospects by ESPN. Those prospects are quarterback Jared Goff, offensive linemen Aaron Cochran and Erik Bunte, running back Khalfani Muhammad, defensive end Sione Sina and cornerback Cameron Walker.
