Nunes Staying In The West
Just days after saying his commitment to Tennessee was no longer solid, Upland (Calif.) quarterback Josh Nunes has now committed to play football in the Pac-10. "I have changed my commitment from Tennessee to Stanford University," Nunes told Scout.com on Saturday. Nunes had committed to Tennessee in June, but earlier this week, told Scout he was softening on it while exploring more options. While he had an offer from Stanford earlier this summer, Nunes committed to Tennessee. Weeks later, Taysom Hill committed to the Cardinal. But all of that changed this week. "I want to say that I feel that any quarterback at the University of Tennessee will be lucky to play with the current players, coaches, and recruits. I had a great experience throughout my recruitment with the Tennessee program. I would like to apologize to the University of Tennessee as I had mistakenly thought that I would not have an opportunity to play at Stanford," said Nunes. The opportunity to play for the Cardinal again came this week, and on Saturday, Nunes made his decision. "Stanford has always been my dream to attend and for the past three years, ever since I've been coached by him at his camp, it's been my dream to play for Coach (Jim) Harbaugh. Stanford is the only school I've camped at for the past few years and I believe that I have to follow my heart," said Nunes. The relationship with the Cardinal coaches played a big part in his decision too. "I've been able to have a great relationship with the entire Stanford program having made probably ten trips up to the campus and games. I will be able to stay close to my family and attend one of the greatest universities in the world. I'm proud and excited to be able to say that I can play for the Stanford Cardinal." Nunes is off to a good start in 2008, leading Upland to a 4-0 record.
