Los Angeles Loyola's David Long is one who got away — from USC and UCLA.
Long, a top defensive back in the 2016 recruiting class, announced his college commitment on Thursday.
"Proud to announce that I will further my education and football career at Stanford University!" he wrote on Twitter.
Long said last month at the Opening, a high school showcase, that he had built solid relationships with Trojans and Bruins assistants -- but also said he could "definitely" see himself leaving home for college.
Long made an unofficial visit to UCLA this summer to play in the Bruins' seven-on-seven tournament.
