Casey Toohill is an intriguing player who missed seven games as a junior after breaking his arm. On film, he's an impressive athlete who plays as a standup outside 'backer and is a natural pass rusher.
He has very good size at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds and can run. At the NIKE Camp in Dallas last spring, Toohill clocked a 4.61-40 (electric), 4.31 shuttle and jumped 34" in the vertical. He camped with Stanford in June and picked up the scholarship offer a week ago.
Once Stanford offered, it seemed like a matter of when, not if he would commit to the Cardinal.
"I just committed to Stanford," Toohill said while on his unofficial visit," Toohill said. "Stanford had everything I was looking for, it's the perfect combination of athletics and academics. I love the coaching staff and Coach Anderson was my primary recruiter and he's a great guy.
"I love the school itself and the football program as well. They want me as an outside linebacker and I think I'll fit in very well there. It's a great feeling right now having this decision behind me. I wanted to have it out of the way before school started and now I can just focus on my senior year. We open up with Folsom (Calif.) and Oaks Christian so I'm excited to get going."
