Stevens starts to consider official visits

Four-star linebacker Craig Stevens out of Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln is starting to consider official visits. Rivals talked to the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder's coach Kyle Rice to find out.
"I think he's going to UCLA in early December. That's the only one he is really close to setting up," Rice said. "I know he's also considering a couple SEC schools, but I'm not sure which ones. I know the schools he's still looking at include Florida, Miami, Florida State, Georgia, Auburn, Alabama and Tennessee among others.
"He's a real quiet kid, so it's hard to get a lot of information out of him. As far as I know he also doesn't have any leaders at this time. If he does, he hasn't divulged it to me."
The last couple weeks the Rivals250 prospect has been missing from the lineup due to a pulled hamstring.
"He hasn't played much in the last few games mostly for precautionary reasons, but he's still having a great season," he said. "He's up to 74 tackles, 42 solos, one and half sacks and three tackles for loss in seven games.
"His performance is very comparable to last year as he's still running sideline to sideline, but is a lot more mature. He doesn't have to make all the plays now because our other kids have stepped up, but he's still playing exceptional."
This week Stevens and Lincoln face off in the first round of the playoffs against Jacksonville Lee.
