Schuyler Rimmer chose Stanford after visiting Vanderbilt, Southern Cal and Virginia.

"Every visit went well. What it really came down to was that I felt like at Stanford I'd be able to develop into the best possible player," Rimmer said.

Rimmer pointed to Cardinal coach Johnny Dawkins’ experience with USA Basketball and the nine years of NBA playing experience assistant coach Mark Madsen had. Madsen is a former Stanford star who joined the staff this year.

"With the experience coach Dawkins has working with Team USA and their player development, and coach Madsen's pro experience. .... it's a great opportunity for me as a player,” Rimmer said.
