Stevens, who pledged to WSU in April on Arizona, Cal and Purdue, is a great piece in the offensive line puzzle. If the ball hits 6-4, 302 pestle below the right starting point as expected, it allows Ma’ake Fifita to return to his natural right guard position and strengthen that side of the offensive line.

Stevens moved to WSU outside of northern Colorado with one year of eligibility remaining.

He started every game in UNC’s right tackle for the past two seasons and in 2021, he was named to the team’s second conference as well as captain.

The Missouri City, Texas native is still fairly new to football – he didn’t pick up the sport until his final year of high school. Before that, he was focusing on basketball. Even with only a year of college football remaining at Wazzu, Stephens’ potential is very high and is expected to provide a major boost to Cougar’s attacking line this fall.

“I’ve played three years (in the NCU) in right-handed interference,” Stevens told CF.C last Friday. “I played Washington State in 2019 and Colorado in 2021 and he’s had good success in those games. So I know I can play interference (in Force 5),” Especially with the resources that are in a place like Washington State, and excel in the intervention… So many people have helped me, I’ve definitely been lucky.”

He told Cougfan.com after his official visit to Washington State that Jake Deckert and O Line coach Clay McGuire loved his feet and his development due to how little experience he has playing.

It can be inferred: “(Stevens in 2021) helped guide UNC to the fewest bags allowed in Big Sky,” the Greeley Tribune reported. “The opponents scored 1.18 sacks in the game, ranking 15th in the NCAA. Stevens was also a player who allowed the UNC to score six 100-yard dash games. The best performance came against Southern Utah, when the Bears rushed for 251 yards.”
