TONY STEVENS IS A SUPER FREAK ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD!
Super Scout Max Emfinger
Tony Stevens (6-3, 187, 4.35) of Orlando Evans, Florida is one of the most amazing players that I have seen in the country this year. He is also one of the greatest return men in the country.
On his highlight film, Stevens returned two different 80-yard punts for touchdowns and then he also returned another punt about 65-yards for a touchdown. There are not too many players who have returned a single return for a touchdown and Stevens gets three. He also had a couple other long returns, but he did not score on them.
Stevens is also one of the fastest players that I have ever seen on film. I would say that he is in the 4.35 range or better in the forty. Most recruiting services do not have him listed as running better than a 4.5.
Stevens was one of the most impressive wide receivers at two 7on7 National Championship Tournaments in the summer, including the IMG 7on7 National Championship and then again at the Gridiron Kings Championship Tournment.
On the second series in the Gridiron Kings Championship Game, Stevens caught a beautiful 30-yard pass down the sideline that set up the Team Southeast first touchdown. Then in the second half, Stevens caught a 12-yard touchdown pass on the sixth series with two defenders on him and then a 19-yard catch and a 6-yard touchdown catch with defenders on him. In the Gridiron Kings Championship Game, Stevens caught five balls for just under 100-yards and two touchdowns.
As a junior, Stevens caught 30 balls for 581-yards for a nice 19.4 yards per catch and he also had 7 touchdowns. He also had at least three kicks for touchdowns.
Stevens had a great junior season, but he was just an incredible performer in the Spring and Summer Camps and Combines and a lot of his recent, great performances have not been reflected in any upgraded Player Ratings by the various Recruiting Services.
For this reason, I feel that Stevens has been Flying a little bit under the recruiting radar by the Recruiting Services. Stevens still had offers from some of the Major BCS Powerhouse teams, including Florida State, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio State.
Stevens gave the FSU Seminoles a verbal in February after his junior season and a lot of schools have tried to get him to change his mine, but he has not wavered. I think that Stevens is a Freak and I believe that he will play as a true freshman for the Seminoles on his way to the NFL.
