National Signing Day: Defensive End Austin Stevens Commits To Boston College

A former Kansas commit and New Jersey native hopes to land a spot on the defensive line.

Austin Stevens

Hometown: Montclair, NJ
High School: Montclair
Position: Linebacker
Height: 6-foot-4
Weight: 245 lbs.
40: N/A
Twitter: N/A

Highlights: Hudl

Rankings: Rivals 2* (position 38), Scout 2* (position 163), ESPN 3* (rated a 73, 126 position, 39  state), 247 Sports 2* (rated an 81, position 100 state 68). Selected Boston College over Buffalo, Kansas, Massachusetts, Old Dominon, Rutgers, Stony Brook, Temple.  Recruited by Ryan Day and Ben Albert.

Strengths: Originally committed to Kansas, Austin Stevens was a late flip for Coach Steve Addazio. His films are a lot of fun to watch (great choice of music with Hells Bells by AC/DC), it showcases a one man wrecking crew on defense. He is another big player, which apparently was high on Addazio's qualities he looked for in players. Not overly fast, but appears very strong, blasting offensive linemen (albeit undersized players) off the ball.

Realistic Outlook: Stevens strikes me as a depth guy, and probably not a guy we will see for the next couple of years. He has a good frame, but Landry and Vitiello both seem more game ready in the immediate future. But as always, having depth is never a bad thing. Stevens is probably going to need some seasoning to be ready for Don Brown's offense, so I would expect him to be redshirted in 2014, and ready to roll out in 2015.
