STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Devon Cajuste visited Stanford two days after David Shaw became the head coach in January 2011. The big receiver needed no sales pitch - just reassurance he wouldn't play tight end.
One of the first commitments Shaw sealed as coach is looking like a smart move now. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound receiver is developing into one of the team's top targets after selecting Stanford over eight other schools - including Harvard - because every other program wanted to turn him into a tight end.
Cajuste's career is taking off at just the right time, too.
Stanford's only New York native will get a chance to showcase his skills in his home state when the fifth-ranked Cardinal (1-0) face Army (1-1) on the West Point campus Saturday.
