Mike Stevens Adds to #Pack14

Doeren keeps a speedy Carolina kid in state.

Mike Stevens, a class of 2014 defensive back who gave Kansas State a verbal commitment over the summer, has flipped his pledge in favor of N.C. State. A three-star recruit according to 247sports, Stevens is a 6-foot, 180-pounder from Davidson who attended Davidson Day. He reportedly has a 40-time under 4.5 seconds.

Stevens had offers from East Carolina and Kentucky, and of course K-State, as well as a number of smaller programs. He fills an obvious need for Dave Doeren, who has just five scholarship corners on the roster after the departure of Marchez Coates. Of the returning cornerbacks, only Juston Burris and Jack Tocho have any extended game experience. The chance to get on the field early, not to mention play much closer to home, likely figured in Stevens' decision to reverse his commitment.

All eyes are now on Trevion Thompson, a four-star receiver from Durham who appears to be down to the Pack and Clemson. Thompson could boost an already impressive recruiting class into realms rarely if ever seen by the Pack program. But it would also behoove recruitniks to keep an eye on Louisville's class, as de-commitments are inevitable with the news that Charlie Strong is headed to Texas. Top-50 tackle prospect Lucayus McNeil, who took official visits to just State and Louisville despite an impressive, mile-long offer list, would be a huge get if he has a change of heart.
