"I'm up to 221 pounds now and I just ran a 4.58 second 40. That was with a bad start so I know I'm capable of a better time with a good start. So I feel like I'm doing pretty good with my training."

With North Carolina already offering Stevens says multiple schools have told him they're highly interested and he says he has an idea as to when he'll start pulling in more offers.

"I think all my offers are gonna come spring practice and when the dead period is over come April 15th."

Stevens talked about his recruitment as to where it stands right now.

"I'm wide open but Georgia just came in to the picture and me, Gerald Turner, Tramel Terry, and probably Jadar Johnson are gonna go down there for G Day. But I'm wide open. Right now I'm liking North Carolina, UGA, South Carolina, and Clemson." will have more updates with Jalen Stevens as his recruitment should start to blow up in the coming months.
