Stevens Signs Scholarship Agreement

The three-star Indiana quarterback will enroll at Penn State in January after signing scholarship papers Monday.

Penn State has confirmed a third member of its class of 2015 will early enroll, as Indianapolis, Ind., Decauter three-star quarterback Tommy Stevens announced, as did the program, that he signed a Grant In Aid agreement Monday.

The paperwork, which ensures schools uphold their scholarship offers to prospects that plan to enroll early, was submitted by Stevens and signed off on as acceptable by Penn State's compliance department, clearing the way for the signal caller to arrive in January. He will be joined in doing so by Pittsburgh Baldwin four-star tackle Sterling Jenkins and JUCO transfer Paris Palmer. All three will be immediately eligible to begin working out with the team.

According to Penn State, Stevens averaged 172 passing yards per game and threw for 16 touchdowns in 2014, and also ran for 4.9 yards per carry while finishing his senior season with 842 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground. He was previously committed to Indiana before flipping to Penn State following an official visit in November.

"It's a good place," Stevens told Scout's Anna Hickey after his PSU official. "It was my first official visit I've ever taken, so I didn't know what to expect.

"They really took care of my family and I, and I loved the family feel. The game was awesome, too. Everything was great. I can only say good things about it."

Stevens was an finalist for Indiana's Gatorade Player of the Year award, and according to Penn State, was a two-time all-conference, all-area, and all-country selection. He is expected to be the only signal caller the Lions take in the class of 2014. The Indiana native committed not long after Penn State lost now Notre Dame verbal and New Jersey four-star Brandon Wimbush.
