Stevens decides on Dawgs

The Huskies have picked up another commit after last weekend's recruiting visits. Mojave, Calif. RB/LB Chris Stevens committed to Washington coaches early this week and Dawgman was able to contact his head coach, Larry Satterfield, to describe his star player.

"He's an extremely humble young man," Satterfield said. "He's really uncomfortable in the limelight, but he is a tremendous player.

"He's a very special player. He has a combination of speed, strength and desire. He's the kind of kid that every coach wants."

Stevens racked up several accolades while playing for Mojave, earning All-CIF honors on defense as a sophomore, junior and senior.

"He played defensive end as a sophomore and junior," Satterfield said. "This season, he played standing up (as a linebacker) because that is where we knew he would have to play in college.

Satterfield claimed the Huskies are recruiting Stevens on both sides of the ball and that he doesn't seem to have a preference of where he wants to play.

"He likes defense a lot, but he could easily play on offense as well," Satterfield continued. "He had 1,751 yards on only 166 carries (10.5 yard average) and 31 touchdowns. He also had some defensive scores.

"Some of our games were so out of reach that he didn't even play in the second half. He had only seven carries in the fourth quarter all season. He could have had a lot more carries and yards if we had wanted to run the score up."

On offense, Stevens earned county offensive player of the year honors from the Bakersfield Californian newspaper.

"He's not interested in individual achievements, he's very team oriented. The most important thing to him is winning."
