Congrats to these great athletes on choosing Stanford as their school of choice. However, unless I'm missing something, these kids are not "headed to Stanford" until their acceptance letters arrive in the mail. While coaches certainly can give input to the Admissions office, it is up to the Office of Admissions to confer acceptance to the university and even early decisions are not made until December. Perhaps your reporters or caption writers should be a little more careful about the words they choose before misrepresenting the facts.
