The last time the Stanford coaching staff pulled a recruit out of the prestigious Harvard-Westlake School in North Hollywood, it was offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. That worked out pretty well, as Martin earned All-Pac-12 and All-America honors before being drafted into the NFL.
This year they've signed Thomas Oser, a 6'4" guard who earned a three-star rating from Rivals.com and turned down scholarship offers from Oregon, Colorado, Washington State, and Vanderbilt, amongst others. After last year's historic haul of offensive linemen, the Cardinal would appear to be stocked at that position, but that will give Oser time to develop. With that in mind, it will likely be at least three years before we know whether or not Oser has lived up to the standard set by Martin (or fellow H-W alums, Jaron and Jason Collins), but we'll be watching.
