Isaiah Sanders will finish out his football eligibility at Stanford as a rare graduate-transfer from Air Force.

The Rhodes Scholar candidate and local product from Palmer Ridge was accepted into the Pac-12 school’s management science and engineering master’s program and will join the Cardinal's football team.

Stanford football coach David Shaw announced the addition of Sanders on Wednesday.

“We are excited about the addition of Isaiah Sanders because of his experience, his abilities and his character,” Shaw said in a statement. “Isaiah will add depth and competition behind Davis Mills and will be a great addition to our locker room.”

Sanders graduated from the academy in April with a degree in systems engineering (with a human factors focus) and a minor in Spanish.
