STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford's Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray announced recently that Ashwin Arasu and Nate Menon each signed a National Letter of Intent to continue their academic and athletic careers at Stanford.
Arasu (Canyon Crest Academy/San Diego, Calif.) and Nate Menon (Wyomissing Area/Wyomissing, Pa.) will join the Cardinal roster in the fall of 2017.
"We are excited to welcome Ashwin Arasu and Nate Menon to the Stanford golf family," said Ray.
