Mountaineers Offer Has Stevens' Attention

Mountaineers Offer Has Stevens' Attention

Decatur Central (Ind.) junior quarterback Tommy Stevens discusses his latest offer from West Virginia and how that may change his plans.

West Virginia offered one of the top quarterback prospects in the Midwest on Tuesday, Decatur Central's Tommy Stevens, an athletic 6-foot-4, 200-pound junior.

His thirteenth offer, Stevens says he has interest in the Mountaineers, and although he has not been to Morgantown, would like to get there soon.

"I really like what they do," he told Scout. "I really want to get out there and check things out."

West Virginia's recruitment of him has just begun, but the process moved along quickly once contact was made and once they could get to his school.

"My recruiter is [offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Shannon Dawson]. We just started talking last week and they saw me throw [on Tuesday]."

Stevens' offer list includes schools like Michigan State, Boston College, Indiana, Nebraska, Purdue and others.

He has had schools like Ohio State, Tennessee, Louisville and others stop in during the spring evaluation period and that interest, along with his recent offers may have him re-thinking his plans.

"I'm not sure to be honest," he says. "I was planning on giving a top five at the end of the month, but schools are in every day. We'll see."

As a junior, Stevens passed for over 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns and added another 800 yards on the ground and seven touchdowns. Recommended Stories
