Commitment Breakdown: Uriah Leiataua

Uriah Leiataua, Stanford's most recent 2014 commitment, has plenty of intriguing details to share about his decision and his background. Check out our exclusive Bootleg radio interview with the defender, who will be leaving on his Mormon mission later this year.

Stanford has its 17th commit of the 2014 recruiting cycle. Uriah Leiataua, who projects as either a defensive end or outside linebacker (depending on his size when he returns from his Mormon mission in 2016), comes from Dominguez High School in Compton, the alma mater of former Cardinal wide receiver and defensive back Richard Sherman. Leiataua's brother, in fact, was teammates with Sherman on Dominguez's 2006 championship team.

Full analysis of his commitment is included in the audio interview below.
