Ryan Burns discusses decision

Prized ESPNU 150 Watch List quarterback Ryan Burns (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) committed to Stanford over the weekend while on an unofficial visit to campus. He spoke with the Washington Post about his decision.

“Everything about it is perfect,” Burns said. “ It seemed like the perfect fit for me. From academics to football, everything is perfect in my mind. It was an easy decision really.”

According to the Post, Stanford established itself as Burns' favorite when he traveled to Palo Alto, Calif. for a visit last year. After this latest trip, Burns felt it was time to end the recruiting process.

“With all these recruiters coming in with recruiting period coming, it’s hard to talk to some of those guys and to say, ‘I’m really looking,’ when honestly I have my decision [made],” Burns said. “It’s really what I felt and I’m glad it’s my decision.”
