Stokes, while mentioning those schools, says he would like to stay closer to home so that his family could see him play. Right now, they are seeing him play very well on a great defensive squad.
"I have about 60 something tackles and probably 2 interceptions. Our defense is really good. We have a good group of linebackers and our secondary is really young; we only have one senior back there (Michigan verbal Jamar Adams)."
Over the summer, Stokes showed his sprinting abilities with a 4.4 at the North Carolina Shrine Bowl combines and sub-4.4 times at the Duke and Wake Forest camps.
Stokes has not been able to line up any official visit.
