Stanford QB Gerhart to the NFL
Toby Gerhart, Stanford University’s star quarterback, announced Fri that he will not be returning for a 5th season at Stanford. He will instead opt to make millions and enter the NFL draft. In a press conference the Heisman Trophy runner up thanked his teammates and coaches for much of the success he accomplished throughout his college career. Toby will be a great pro, and we are all excited for his opportunity at the next level,” Harbaugh said. “We are excited and enthused to watch Toby and all of our seniors go on to become leaders in their chosen fields,” said Stanford coach coach Jim Harbaugh.
Gerhart has many college records to his credit, including a school record 1,871 yards ran. Stanford’s offense next season will revolve more around quarterback Andrew Luck. Stepfan Taylor, who ran for 303 yards as a freshman, will step in at tailback along with Jeremy Stewart and Tyler Gaffney.
