DB Stevenson to official at UConn?

Many high schools aren't even out yet but David Stevenson, a defensive back from from Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson is already looking ahead to official visits. Those are always taken in the fall and winter and Stevenson is thinking that he might like to reserve one of his allotted trips for a visit to Connecticut.

Connecticut is a long way from Georgia, both in terms of things ranging from distance to culture and weather. Some prospects have no problem leaving their home states and even look forward to experiencing a different part of the country, while others entertain the idea before deciding they can't be so far from home.

Only time will tell which camp Stevenson will fall into, but as it stands he already has the opportunity to take his game to very different parts of the country. He doesn't seem ready to make a decision in the near future, so he'll be spending the next few weeks and months doing as much homework as he can.

Stevenson has offers from UConn, Southern Miss, Marshall and Buffalo. He has also been hearing a lot from Duke though the Blue Devils haven't offered. Where do the Huskies stand?

"I've kept in real good touch with them," Stevenson said of UConn. "They're real high for me right now. I've got a few other schools high up there too, but UConn's up there with all the rest of them.

"I probably talk to coach Johnson maybe once a week. We've got a good relationship."

Though Stevenson doesn't have any plans to visit UConn over the summer he does hope to eventually get up to the school.

"Maybe I'll go up there for an official visit," he said. "It depends on what everything is looking like then but I'd like to."

The 5-foot-9, 160-pound cornerback from the Peach State has not had a chance to visit any of the schools recruiting him yet. He said the only time he's been away from home for an extended time was to visit Mississippi, but he didn't visit Southern Miss or either of the two SEC schools in the state.

"I'm just going to wait to see how things play out," he said, emphasizing that he doesn't plan on making an early decision. "I'm not going to make any (early) promises."

Last fall Stevenson recorded 30 tackles and six pass breakups as one of the top defensive backs in his region.
