Malvern Prep’s Jake Hornibrook, a stalwart offensive tackle, announced his commitment to play at Stanford on Sunday.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound senior visited Stanford with his parents, Jeff and Dawn, in the spring. He returned to Palo Alto on his own for an unofficial visit early last month.

“The school is great, I liked my interaction with the coaches, and I felt very comfortable with the players when I got a chance to meet them,” he said. “They’re really good guys.”

Hornibrook earned first-team all-area honors last season while helping Malvern Prep go 6-4 overall and 5-0 in the Inter-Ac League. The 17-year-old from West Chester also saw time at defensive tackle.
