"They are trying to build the program. The coaches and players are talking good. They have a tough match-up this weekend against Virginia Tech. I am going this weekend for the game."
Stevenson shared reasons for commiting to the in-state school.
"Basically the reason I committed was because they have a good program and are trying to build it," Stevenson explained. "I also want to be a good student-athlete. Education was a big part of my decision. I can get a good degree from Duke and be set after college."
Stevenson has a good relationship with the coaching staff.
"They are keeping in touch with me," he said. "Coach Jim Collins talks to me. He is a real humble guy. I believe he is a good coach. We talk about how I am doing and see how everything is going up here."
The 6-foot, 194-pound prospect discussed playing on the defensive side of the ball on the next level.
"They recruited me to play cornerback," Stevenson said. "I feel good about playing the position. I can really see what I can do on the field. I feel like my speed and jumping ability are my biggest strengths. I am trying to improve on my footwork. I think it's good, but I can improve."
Stevenson updated the latest about his senior season as well.
"The season is going pretty good," he said "We have had a rough start. We should pick it up. We are 2-3. We play Lexington at their place this week. We had a good week of practice."
"I know I have five touchdowns this year. I don't have any defensive stats. I am playing wide receiver, strong safety, free safety, cornerback, punter and kicker."
