Texas commit talks major offer

Jordan Stevenson remains happily committed to Texas but he said last weekend at the RCS Dallas that a recent offer from Alabama was big - and a major shock.
"It was quite a surprise," Stevenson said. "I really haven't been talking to them but they said they were really interested. It came from hard work and dedication. Like they say if you bless the game, the game will bless you."
The Dallas (Texas) South Oak Cliff three-star running back has been committed to the Longhorns since mid-October and said he plans to stick with them at this point.
Stevenson, a 5-foot-9, 188-pound speedster, has talked with Alabama coach Nick Saban though and said he'll take a serious look at the Crimson Tide.
"Everything worked out and the next thing you know Nick Saban wanted to have a phone conversation with me and then it went from there - he offered me a scholarship," Stevenson said.
"I won't let one thing judge what I have going on. I'm just going to keep doing what got me to that point. I'm still in good with Texas. I'm going to let God work out everything, keep doing what I'm doing and play my role."
The South Oak Cliff standout who said Oregon could be the next offer for him was non-committal on whether he would take official visits. Other than Alabama, Stevenson lists offers from Arkansas and Utah State.
Visits could happen but the three-star running back didn't say one way or another.
"I feel like whatever comes I have to handle it at the moment," Stevenson said.
