DE/OLB Jalen Stevens Profile
Goose Creek rising senior defensive end/outside linebacker Jalen Stevens enjoyed his trip to Tigertown.
"I went up there with Gerald Turner and his mom. I talked to coach Tony Elliott and coach Dabo [Swinney]. He said he was glad we came. It was good," Stevens recently told CUTigers. "We talked to my homeboy Mike Williams. We're real cool. We chilled together. We had a meeting with Dabo. He was just telling us what Clemson was about. He was telling what he wants out of us for academics and athletics.
"It was an all-around good visit. I'm going to the camp. Coach [Marion] Hobby and the defensive coordinator want to see me."
What stood out the most?
"The highlight tape got me amped. The defense, even though it was a bad turnout in the Orange Bowl, it was real good. What else caught my attention, how the coaches talk to you."
Stevens has also visited Georgia and Georgia Tech. He'll head to North Carolina for the spring game and South Carolina for a spring practice.
The Tar Heels have offered. He thinks the Gamecocks could be next.
"Everybody is going to come see me during spring practice, because I'm playing middle linebacker this year," Stevens said.
He's worked primarily as a defensive end during his career at Goose Creek. As a junior, Stevens had over 70 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss, nine sacks two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
