"Alabama is recruiting me now," Stevens told Scout.com recently.

The 2013 prospect lines up as a defensive end for coach Chuck Reedy's Goose Creek Gators but he's being projected as a linebacker on the next level currently by Scout.com. At 6'3 216 pounds Stevens has been on a tear early in his career. He's looked impressive in 2011 so far making plays all over the field for the Gators.

Although the Gators lost in overtime 52-51 to University (FL) Stevens talked about the game.

"I got hurt, but we came up short when the doc took me out the game. The next play on kickoff, a dude took my spot and messed up and they ran one back on us­­."

Stevens says he suffered a bruised sternum but fully expects to go this week.

"I gotta get 4 sacks this week so I can get back with my average of 2 sacks a game­­."

Schools like Clemson, Connecticut, Florida State, Georgia Tech, and South Carolina have already started recruiting the 2013 standout.

Stay tuned for more coverage of Stevens as he projects to be one of South Carolina's top 2013 prospects.
