"(USC offensive line) coach Tim Davis really liked me," said Stevens. "It seems like there were a thousand kids there and they selected the top five offensive and defensive linemen to go up against each other towards the end of the day. I went up against an opponent three times and I won every time. Coach Davis was real happy with what he saw from me. I liked the way he was teaching me. I learned some new things."
Stevens was impressed enough with USC and Coach Davis that he says that UCLA, his long-time leader, now only holds a "slight" lead for his services over the Trojans. He is a lifelong Bruins fan.
"I am a Bruins fan, big-time," Stevens explains. "I always have been but I like USC a lot right now, too."
He does not have any offers yet and has not received any May phone calls.
The rest of his top schools include Nebraska, Arizona State, Colorado, and Cal. This summer he will attend the Cal camp and says he has a lot of family near Berkeley. Stevens will also possibly make it to the USC and BYU camps.
