Houston 5-star football recruit Walker Little headed to Stanford

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Just in time for Christmas, Stanford has landed one of the most talented football players in the nation.



Little is a giant on the field and in the classroom. Standing 6'8'' he is one of the best offensive tackles in the country, getting offers from over 30 schools. In the classroom, he is a four-year honor roll student who wants to study medicine and be an orthopedic surgeon.

Little entertained coaching staffs from Texas, Stanford, Florida State and Ole Miss on in-house visits and took official visits to Stanford, Florida State and Georgia. But he has narrowed his choices to Texas and Stanford.

His mother recently posted a photo to Twitter with the Little family and the Texas coaching staff, including new head coach Tom Herman.
