Stanford nabs Gonzaga QB Hogan
Stanford has made inroads recruiting the Washington area and the Cardinal continued its success landing local players Friday when second-team All-Met quarterback Kevin Hogan of Gonzaga committed to play for Stanford.
Hogan, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound rising senior, previously had narrowed his choices to the Cardinal, Virginia, Vanderbilt and Rutgers.
"I visited a couple weeks ago and I liked it," Hogan said. "Then I went back out this weekend to camp with Coach [Jim] Harbaugh and I decided that was the place for me."
Hogan returned to Washington on Thursday and called back to Stanford on Friday to let the coaches know he would accept their scholarship offer.
Hogan said he was not deterred by Stanford's location some 3,000 miles from his home - "it's a long ways away, but it's only a five-hour plane ride" - and liked the opportunity to play for another former standout quarterback.
"He's a great coach and has a lot of experience at the position," Hogan said. "They expect [rising sophomore] Andrew Luck will go high in the [NFL] draft whenever he goes out. It what kind of coaching Coach Harbaugh and his staff do."
