Stanford lands a commitment from four-star seven-footer

1 Comment

Johnny Dawkins continued his excellent recruiting run by earning a commitment from a four-star seven-footer on Wednesday.

“Officially committed to Stanford University!!!” Josh Sharma tweeted.

Sharma is the No. 83 recruit in the country, according to Rivals. He ended up choosing the Cardinal over Wisconsin and Boston College, among others. Sharma made his official visit to Palo Alto this past weekend.

“Josh is still a few years away from being a major contributor in the Pac-12, but he’s developed nicely over the last 12 months and has great natural size,” NBCSports.com recruiting analyst Scott Phillips said. “Once he adds strength, he should be able to score in the post and rebound and defend his area.”

Stanford now has three four-star recruits in their 2015 class, as Sharma will join versatile wing forwards Cameron Walker and Marcus Sheffield in the class.
