Barry Sanders Jr. ready to run with Cardinal

Two developing headaches for every college football program in the land, save for one:

(1) Hall of Fame RB Barry Sanders has a son, Barry Jr.

(2) Barry Jr. plays football. He looks every bit as dangerous as Daddy. And he’s going to Stanford.

Some wondered if Junior would follow in his father’s footsteps and choose Oklahoma State, but that is not to be.

“I’m going to play on The Farm the next fo — the next few years,” Barry Jr. told KNTV-TV on Saturday, carefully sidestepping a four-year commitment in Palo Alto.

“I’m proud of the man BJ is becoming and the choices he is making on his own,” Barry Sr. said in a statement Saturday. “I’m excited for the opportunity he has earned to continue to grow at Stanford in both education and athletics.”

Barry Jr. is a powerful curiosity because of his father’s dazzling career with the Lions, but after leading Heritage Hall School in Oklahoma City (Wes Welker‘s alma mater) to the state title as a freshman, the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder has worked to forge his own path — often right through opposing defenses. Take for example, his outrageous outing against a bewildered Bethany High team in October (check out the video above, with Barry Jr. wearing No. 26).

“It’s almost like he cuts midair,” Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert said in September. “He has the ability to change directions that most people don’t.”

Most people outside of those in the Sanders family, that is.

We could be four years away from drafting the next Barry Sanders...literally.

He will forgo his senior year. The writings on the wall.

He started to say 4 years and stopped himself and changed it to "few years".
