Sam Wharton has confirmed that he’ll be a Stanford Cardinal next year. The Nike Cross National champ will join Foot Locker runner-up Sean McGorty in Palo Alto next fall.
The two will add depth to a Cardinal squad that was ranked as high as tied for second in the Men’s Cross Country National Coaches’ Poll this season (Week #7). The Cardinals will only lose two of their top seven from the 2012 cross country season where they finished 16th.
Wharton will look to drop his personal bests of 9:01.24 for 3200m and 14:46 for 5000m under the tutelage of coach Chris Miltenberg.
