Stallings took his visit to Yale in early October.
He visited Harvard, Penn and Air Force in subsequent months but none stacked up with Yale.
Stallings said the community's investment in the program and the opportunities after football swayed him to Yale.
Stallings had 21 catches for 345 yards and four touchdowns and also ran for four touchdowns.
He had 42 tackles and four sacks defensively.
Yale, like other Ivy League schools, does not offer athletic scholarships but does offer need-based financial aid to athletes.
COACHES VS. CANCER CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY
The American Cancer Society is taking time to celebrate a significant achievement on Tuesday night. The organization's Coaches vs. Cancer program is celebrating its 20th birthday.
The celebration will be held between the girls and boys basketball games at Putnam City North, which hosts Choctaw on Tuesday night.
Regional vice president Lesa Foster will join Oklahoma Coaches Association president Jarrett Hurt and representatives from both schools in blowing out candles on a giant 20th birthday cake before the boys game begins at 7:30 p.m.
Slices of the commemorative cake will be sold to fans for $5 benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer.
“Since the inception of Coaches vs. Cancer in 1993, high school and college coaches have raised more than $75 million for the American Cancer Society,” Foster said. “By celebrating Coaches vs. Cancer's 20th birthday, we're ultimately honoring the coaches, communities and schools that have made this fight against cancer through sports possible.”
