High School: Hails from national powerhouse Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas ... helped lead the Gaels to their fourth consecutive state championship in 2012 ... posted 45 tackles, 5.5 sacks, had one interception, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery as a senior ... also played tight end where he caught seven passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns ... posted eight tackles against Our Lady of Good Consel High School in Maryland and seven against Bergen Catholic of New Jersey - both prep teams that each finished the season nationally ranked.
Other Notes: His brother Ronnie Stanley is a freshman offensive tackle at Notre Dame ... Robert also played basketball at Bishop Gorman ... he is the first Las Vegas prospect to come to Fresno State since linebacker Ben Jacobs (Silverado HS) who was a two-time All-WAC selection for the Bulldogs and had 387 tackles in his career that ended in 2010.
Coaches Comments: "He is a very diverse athlete that has the size and dimensions of a pass rushing outside linebacker or defensive end, but is athletic enough to drop back in coverage. He is very raw and very young, but also has the potential to be a very big guy for us in this defense. He played in some of the biggest high school games in the entire country at Bishop Gorman and we are fortunate to have a guy come here from that program. We fell in love with him at our team camp last summer and knew he was a guy we wanted to be a Bulldog."
