2003 Spotlight: Matt Stevenson

Matt Stevenson, a small forward from Towson Catholic has already made some unofficial visits. He's set for a big year at Towson Catholic.

Select's Matt Stevenson

Matt Stevenson, a 6-7 small forward from Towson Catholic will be heavily relied upon for the Owls to challenge Archbishop Spalding and Calvert Hall for the Baltimore Catholic League Championship this year.

Stevenson was one of Towson Catholic's go to guys when Carmello Anthony (now at Oak Hill) and Byron Joynes (power forward and fellow junior) were unable to play for a stretch of games last year. He was the team's leading scorer and rebounder on several occasions before breaking his arm after a spectacular play in which he blocked an opponents shot.

The Owls will need a big year from Matt to help them on the quest for the Championship.

Matt played for Baltimore Select last spring and summer as a sophomore. He really helped the Select team advance to the final four of the Southern Invitational. He also played well at the Adidas Three Stripe Classic at Hofstra and in Las Vegas. Both tournament the Select team won there pools and lost in the final eight at Hofstra and the final four in Vegas.

Stevenson runs the court and is a good shooter from outside. Matt is used to playing the power forward so he has no problem with battling bigger guys on the box. He will need to work on his quickness and ball handling to become a high major wing player.

Stevenson has visited (alpha order) Delaware, Maryland, Villanova and William & Mary. Matt plans to take several other unofficial visits during this school year. He has several other schools interested and with his development he will get recruited heavy. Matt carries a 3.0-plus average and has not yet taken the SAT.
