Four-Star Wide Receiver Flips To Auburn

A former commitment to both Florida State and Texas A&M, U.S. Army All-American receiver Tony Stevens chose the Auburn Tigers on Sunday following his official visit to the Auburn.

Orlando, Fla.—A four-star wide receiver and a previous commitment to the Texas A&M Aggies, big Tony Stevens, took an official visit to Auburn over the weekend to check out the Tigers along with teammate Dominic Walker. At 6-4, 185, Stevens is rated the No. 21 receiver in the country by and says that he's now an Auburn Tiger.

"It went good," Stevens said of his visit. "When I was there it just felt like home. It was a family there. Everybody was happy and happy to see the football players around. I committed to Auburn University.

"I liked the facilities," he added. "I liked the business facilities as well. They talked to me about education. When we went to the basketball game and the crowd there. I loved how they reacted to the basketball game. If they acted like that to a basketball game I want to see how they react to a football game. It just felt like home."

Stevens is an U.S. Army All-American.

A commitment to Florida State on two different occasions where Dameyune Craig was recruiting him for the Seminoles, Stevens changed to Texas A&M in early January. However, with the Aggies loading up at the position and Craig now at Auburn he said it's just a natural fit with the Tigers and he's excited about the opportunity.

"It was big," Stevens said of Craig being at Auburn. "He's a cool guy. He's funny. He knows how to talk and is just down to earth. He just gets down to business."

Instead of his family driving to Texas to see him play, Stevens said one of the big draws to him with Auburn was the fact that it's much closer to home now and they'll be able to see him play more often.

"It's a five or six hour drive depending on who is driving," Stevens said. "They can come see me and that's very good to me."

As a senior he had 29 receptions for 517 yards and six touchdowns even with Walker on the other side. He added 30 catches for 581 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.

Stevens becomes the second wide receiver commitment for Auburn joining Earnest Robinson. With the chance to come in and play early the talented receiver said that's big, but he's prepared to compete for a job.

"It was a factor, but anywhere I go I'm going to have to compete," Stevens said. "I'll just go out there and compete for the starting spot."

Stevens said he doesn't plan on taking any other official visits and he's 100 percent committed to Auburn.
