Stevenson feels good about top schools

Freddie Stevenson was a sideline spectator during the Jimbo Fisher football camp at Florida State late last week. The 6-foot-1, 225-pound junior is nearly ready to return from an injury that has sidelined him since September.

"I feel really good and it's tough to watch all this competition at the camp and not be able to step up and compete," Stevenson said. "But I'm getting there and I'm going to be ready soon."

Stevenson has had a busy spring and took trips to Florida and FSU last week.

"I like both schools and Florida talked with me about what I can do in their different defenses because they mix things up a lot," Stevenson said. "At FSU the coaches are great and everything is real nice. I feel real comfortable here because coach [Odell] Haggins and coach [Greg] Hudson are down-to-earth guys."

Stevenson said that his top five remains Texas A&M, Penn State, Florida State, South Florida and Western Kentucky but he is starting to feel some separation at the top.

"Texas A&M and Penn State have really been recruiting me hard for a while now," Stevenson said. "I would say those two and FSU are probably the programs that I feel the best about right now."
