FanSided 150 Linebacker Talks Cardinal, Irish, and Cavilers


Doug Randolph out of Richmond, VA. committed to Stanford in late June of 2011. He still firmly committed to the Cardinal, but is still exploring other options. 

“I felt like Stanford was the right decision for me,” Randolph said. “I have had a couple other schools offer me since I committed. I recently received offers from Duke and Maryland. They just kinda showed me the pros of their school, and didn’t really try to get me to sway away from Stanford.”

The 6-foot-3 225 lb. linebacker out of Woodberry Forest High School, plans on having a busy spring, and summer.

“I am going to Notre Dame this summer, and I am going to the Virginia spring game this weekend,” Randolph said. “When I go to Virginia, I am just going to take it all in. It’s close to home, and its a great program. I just wanted to see the game, and they invited me to the spring game.  I wouldn’t say that I am going there with the thought of changing my commitment. There is not one thing that could change my mind, but it’s not impossible.”

Woodberry Forest is a boarding school in Virginia. So being away from home will not be an issue for the number 84 player in the country.

As far as Notre Dame is concerned, Randolph is just excited to be invited to see the Irish.

“What else can I say other than it’s Notre Dame,” Randolph said. “Its another opportunity its just an experience, and  to explore more opportunities. They are a great program, and I am looking forward to seeing them.”

The talented 4 star linebacker plans on going to see the Cardinal in late June.

“I’ll be taking my visit to Stanford in late June,” Randolph said. “Coach (Pep) Hamilton is my recruiting coach. We have a good  relationship. We talk about everything from school to football. He is great. The academics at Stanford were very appealing to me. Everyone in my family is a doctor. From my siblings to parents, all doctors. I don’t think I will make my major in the medicine field. I think my major will be more towards business.”

Randolph plans on attending a Nike Combine, Stanford’s football camp, and junior day this year.

In his junior campaign he had 47 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 27 quarterback hurries.
