Recruiting Scene: Stephens continues the pipeline established between Durham Hillside HS and NC State becoming the third player in three years to commit to the Wolfpack under Head Coach Dave Doeren.  WR was a major priority in the 2016 class and with Stephens being close by and familiar to the NC State staff it didn’t take long for the Pack to extend an offer.  That offer came during the Dave Doeren ‘Alpha Wolf Showcase’ elite camp over the summer.  Later that same evening Stephens accepted the offer via verbal commitment.

Why NC State? “I kind of wanted to stay in-state and I feel like this is the best in-state program. I feel like I can come over here and get a chance to start at receiver. They just make it feel like everybody is family here, the vibe and everything is real good.”

Picked NC State Over: ECU, App St, Old Dominion and James Madison

Scouting Report: "He's a four-year guy. He exemplifies what we want in our program. He has good grades, never misses a workout. He's gotten better over his four years, always working hard and he just exemplifies every thing we want in a kid."- Former Durham Hillside HC/Current ECU RB Coach Antonio King
