ISU targeting Texas tight end

Cyclone Sports Report talks with Friendswood (TX) High School tight end Trevor Stevens about his recruitment with Iowa State and when he might make his final decision.

Cyclone Sports Report: When did Iowa State start showing major interest in you as a player?

Trevor Stevens: I would say when Coach Pope came to spring practice. He said he was impressed with how I went through things and he liked that I showed a lot of intensity even during practice.

Cyclone Sports Report: What schools do you have offers from so far?

Trevor Stevens: Iowa State and Boise State

Cyclone Sports Report: What other schools are showing you a lot of interest?

Trevor Stevens: Mississippi State and some of the Ivy League schools with Harvard probably showing the most.

Cyclone Sports Report: What are your strengths at tight end?

Trevor Stevens: I'm more of a combination tight end in that I block a lot but I also get out and run routes. I'm also getting more slot work this year.

Cyclone Sports Report: Have the Iowa State coaches addressed with you the fact that the tight end plays a major role in their offensive scheme?

Trevor Stevens: Yeah, we talked a little bit about it and they said they could see me playing H-back and tight end in their scheme. I like that the tight end is at least an option in almost every play that they run.

Cyclone Sports Report: Are you planning on taking a visit to Iowa State?

Trevor Stevens: Yeah, I'll probably take my official to Iowa State in the winter once my season is done. I don't know when that will be with the possibility of us in the playoffs but I definitely want to take a visit to Iowa State.

Cyclone Sports Report: Do Iowa State and Boise State have a solid advantage due their early offers to you?

Trevor Stevens: They are the first schools to offer me so they will always stand out with me. They thought I could do it from the start and so that really sticks in my mind.

Cyclone Sports Report: When do you expect to make your final decision?

Trevor Stevens: I expect that it will probably be after my season. I want to take all my visits to make sure that I'm in the right place. I have heard way too much about players rushing things and then going to places where they didn't like it. I want to take my time and make sure that I make the right decision.
