Steve has received offers from Minnesota, Illinois, Northwestern, Indiana, NC State, Duke, Maryland, Cincinnati, and all of the Mid-American programs. Schools that are showing a high interest in Steve but want to see him camp first include Ohio State, Michigan, Miami (FL), and Tennessee. Miami offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski (a Toledo, OH native), is really interested in his talent.
Coaches like Steve's athleticism coupled with his size. Coach Cox explains, "You have to be athletic when you are that size. That is the only way a player will be successful." Steve's size in combination with the way he moves reminds Coach Cox of St. Louis Ram and former Ohio State Buckeye Orlando Pace.
In terms of improving to achieve success on the college field, Coach Cox feels Steve needs to work on speed and strength. However, Coach Cox adds that every player must work on speed and strength because the college game is so much different than the high school game.
