"Right now I like a lot of the ACC schools and SEC schools. It has been a good experience, and I do not want to limit my options yet," says the 6-foot-1, 205 pounder who could still end up playing either linebacker or safety in college. "Duke is not the only offer I have (Eastern Kentucky), but I would also like to hear from South Carolina, Clemson, and Wake Forest."
Stokes, while mentioning those schools, says he would like to stay closer to home so that his family could see him play. Right now, they are seeing him play very well on a great defensive squad.
"I have about 60 something tackles and probably 2 interceptions. Our defense is really good. We have a good group of linebackers and our secondary is really young; we only have one senior back there (Michigan verbal Jamar Adams)."
Over the summer, Stokes showed his sprinting abilities with a 4.4 at the North Carolina Shrine Bowl combines and sub-4.4 times at the Duke and Wake Forest camps.
Stokes has not been able to line up any official visit.
