The dual-threat quarterback visited the Lincoln campus in mid-June as part of a week-long visit of colleges. Nebraska, which runs a spread option offense, offered Stanton on June 14.
“It was the best for me,” he said of Nebraska in a text message. “I really felt good with the whole school and program.”
Stanton picked the Big Ten Cornhuskers over several offers in the Pac-12 along with Wisconsin, Air Force and San Diego State.
He had Pac-12 offers from Utah, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal and Washington.
In the end, he picked Nebraska over Wisconsin and Oregon.
Stanton is ranked fourth in the latest OCVarsity recruiting rankings for 2013. He is the sixth senior-to-be from Santa Margarita to commit to a Division 1 school.
