Jack Dreyer waited until Tuesday at 10:09 p.m. to make his first -- and maybe last -- post on Twitter.
"Officially committed to Stanford feeling blessed cardinal the farm i look good in red" -- @Jack--H--Dreyer
"That was my first tweet and I think it couldn't have been any better. But I wouldn't expect very many tweets from me. I'm not really a big Twitter guy," said Dreyer, a 6-foot-8, 290-pound senior tackle at Serra High.
Cal, Harvard and Yale were also on his list, but Dreyer didn't hesitate to commit to the Cardinal football program when he was offered a scholarship at Tuesday's practice.
