"It's going good," Stephens said. "We're 3-3 and I'm playing great. I have about six sacks and 20 tackles."
Stephens, 6-foot-2 and 290 pounds, hasn't received any Division 1 scholarship offers yet but he's getting some looks.
"Lately my coaches have told me UM and Illinois have been asking about me," he said. "I'm not sure which ones I like most. I'm still thinking."
Stephens talked more about his interest in those two programs.
"I don't know that much about Illinois but I know they're a program on the rise," he said. "UM, I like them a lot. I grew up watching them and my family members are big fans as well."
Whether it's one of those two schools or anyone else, Stephens knows it'll be a tough choice one day. He talked about what he'll be looking for.
"The main thing I am going to be looking for when making a decision is does the program remind me of home, early playing time and how is the coaching because I want a good relationship with my position coach."
