Nottingham Decommits from UCLA

Brett Nottingham, QB from Monte Vista High, is visiting Stanford this weekend:

During his official visit to Stanford on Friday, he orally committed to coach Jim Harbaugh.

"I talked about the decision with my parents and sisters, some of my (Monte Vista) coaches and the main thing was academics," Nottingham said. "This is an important life-decision and Stanford academics are in a league of their own."

He originally committed to UCLA on June 23, but slowly found himself leaning toward Stanford, which continued to recruit him throughout the season.

"I've been thinking about my future a lot lately and the more I thought about it, the more I kept envisioning Stanford being a part of it," Nottingham said. "A degree from Stanford will set you up for life."

Nottingham called UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel on Friday to inform him of his decision.

UPDATE (N): Not all that worked up over this recruiting loss (See comments from muircoch). I hope CRN doesn't bother re-recruiting him. The best case scenario IMHO is Prince (fingers crossed) really comes through with a solid and healthy season, requiring only mopup duties (which we can look to either Crissman or Landers for). Then redshirt Brehaut and space the roster out a bit. This decommitt hopefully will allow the staff to open up another spot for a DE, DL or an OL. Good luck to Brett up at the Farm. He is going to need it when the program is looking for a new coach after Harbaugh moves on either to the NFL or goes home to Ann Arbor. GO BRUINS.
