Signing day is still two years away for McAllen (Texas) Memorial junior running back Bradley Stephens, but that hasn't stopped a second Big 12 program from offering him a scholarship.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder already had an offer on the table from Iowa State and after an unofficial visit to Ames, Iowa, two weeks ago he came away very impressed. But on Tuesday his first in-state scholarship offer came in.
"There is news hot off the press," Craig Stephens, Bradley's father said. "Bradley received an offer today from Texas A&M."
Stephens had 1,200 yards rushing and 376 yards receiving as a freshman. As a sophomore, he racked up 1,600 yards and 500 yards receiving. He's also a talented sprinter with a top 100-meter time of 10.7 seconds and he also has a 4.0 grade-point average.
"I'm not a power runner," Stephens told Rivals.com earlier this month. "I like to make a lot of cuts and stuff. I ran with a lot more power as a sophomore. But the biggest thing is that I make people miss."
Stephens appears to be pretty open about his college choices but lists A&M, Texas, Ohio State, Michigan and Iowa State as his top teams.
