And it could be good news for Rutgers if the decision is made to offer the class of 2012 receiver/safety from Sayreville High (Parlin, N.J.) a scholarship.
Stephenson's brother, Daryl, is a defensive tackle with the Bombers and a Rutgers commit. "I think I want to do it," Delon said about playing in college with Daryl. "I just like playing on the same team with him."
However, it is the Scarlet Knights he knows the most about, and for good reason.
"I know some of the coaches because I go there sometimes with my brother," Delon said. "I deal with (assistant) Robb Smith. I like talking to him.
"They've been doing really good and been going to bowl games. When my brother went on junior day, I got the tour of the whole school and things like that. I paid attention to it." Stephenson plays receiver, running back and safety, but his preference is to play on offense in college.
"I'm just an offensive guy," he said.
A season-opening win against South Brunswick showed. He carried 13 times for 142 yards and a score, caught two passes (both touchdowns) for 15 yards and also had a two-point conversion. Defensively, he made four tackles as the Bombers looked primed to push toward a Central Jersey Group IV playoff spot.
"I think we can win states," Stephenson said. "We have a lot of players coming back. Defense is the strength of the team, especially the front seven."
