Stanley was ranked by 247Sports as the country’s 10th best o-lineman in the class of 2014 and the third best player in the state of South Carolina. He was a participant in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl thanks to his efforts as a senior in high school. Stanley was in high demand; Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, and Ohio State were among his offers.
A wrist injury limited Stanley a little bit during his true freshman campaign, but he found himself in the offensive line rotation and in every game as a redshirt freshman just last year.
Stanley has found himself behind Cory Helms on the post-spring two-deep depth chart, but that’s far from set in stone. Even so, expect the redshirt sophomore to get plenty of time in the rotation; Will Muschamp has praised his work effort during the spring, especially with Alan Knott getting banged up.
