Stamper, a former teammate of Commodore freshman linebacker Kevin Joyce, was one of a handful of official visitors the weekend of Dec. 7. Stamper was offered a scholarship on his visit and informed the coaches of his decision shortly afterwards.
Stamper was also reportedly being pursued by Rutgers and Wake Forest. He led Lake Highland Prep to a 9-1 regular-season record this past season, but his team was defeated by South Sumter in the Region 2 final on Nov. 29. He played on both sides of the line for Coach Tim Borcky's Highlanders, a traditional power in Florida's Class 2A.
Verbal commitments are not binding. National signing day is Feb. 6, 2003.
