The run of commitments from the class of 2018 continues and Rivals150 big man Keenan Fitzmorris is off the board. After a recent visit to Stanford, he's all in.

A fluid and athletic 6-foot-11 center who can stretch the floor with his shooting, Fitzmorris will join his sister Audriana Fitzmorris who will be a sophomore on the volleyball team as a Stanford athlete.

"I've always known that it's a great school and a great program with great people," Fitzmorris told "Throughout the recruiting process I was always impressed with the character of the coaches there and it's the greatest school in the world.

"It doesn't hurt that my sister is there."

Fitzmorris is in need of strength and can be a bit inconsistent at times, but he has big upside and plenty of skill and work ethic that Jerod Haase covets.

"They love my work ethic, my enthusiasm and my character," said Fitzmorris. "They also love my potential from everything they've told me.

"They really value versatility with their players. For me it would not only be playing inside but also shooting the three, dribbling, passing and playing fluidly with their other players. I see myself as a player who can stretch the floor and hopefully be dominant inside."

With his recruitment out of the way, Fitzmorris is looking forward to finishing his summer strong with KC Run GMC on the Under Armour circuit and then having a big senior year. He joins fellow four-star prospect Cormac Ryan in Stanford's early recruiting class.

"It feels incredible," said Fitzmorris. "It's a lot off of my shoulders. It's bittersweet to end things with so many great coaches that have recruited me. It's nice to focus on school and basketball this last year."
