Have you attended any summer camps?

"Yes. I've met the Alabama coaches at the Alabama camp."

Have you taken any unofficial visits?

"No sir."

"Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Clemson, South Carolina, Louisville."

"Yes. This is not in any order: Alabama, Michigan, LSU, Arkansas and ... Clemson."

Are you planning on deciding early, or will you wait and take official visits?

"I'm not thinking of deciding early."

In mid-June Stover told GBW's Sam Webb regarding Michigan: "They've been my favorite team ever since I started watching football. I loved Desmond Howard!" ... and that he knows U-M commitment Max Martin: "Yeah, I was at an Alabama game chillin' with him last year." However, in lieu of a U-M offer Alabama is considered the favorite.
