Notre Dame garnered a solid score out of Las Vegas on Thursday as they landed a verbal from four-star offensive-line prospect Ronnie Stanley (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman). He is a nice-sized kid, and while he needs to continue to add bulk, he displays a frame that can support more good mass. He displays good foot quickness as well good upper body playing strength.

He is not a road-grader as a blocker but is productive, and if he can add good size as well keep his pads down, he flashes the ability to develop into a dominant run blocker. With a nice reach and nimble feet, he has the tools to be a good pass blocker as well, but again, he displays a tendency to play too tall and needs to play lower.
