High School: Montclair
2013 Stats (HS): Garnered 2013 second-team all-state and first-team all-county honors ... helped lead Montclair to an undefeated season and state championship title in 2013 ... member of a defense that allowed just 4.8 points per game and shut out opponent in championship game ... tallied 55 tackles, including two for loss and seven sacks, and three fumble recoveries in 2013 ... also tallied 49 tackles, including 9.5 sacks, in 2012.(via BCEagles.com)
2014 Projections: The Eagles probably will have some space available on the two deep at defensive end. Malachi Moore and Brian Mihalik are projected to be starters, and Kevin Kavalec could see time as well but that certainly is not going to be set in stone. Stevens could work his way up the depth chart along with fellow freshman Harold Landry. Again this could be a position battle to watch this fall.
How'd He Get Here: Austin Stevens is a 2* defensive end that chose Boston College over claimed offers from Buffalo, Kansas, Old Dominion, Rutgers, Temple, and UMass
On why he chose Boston College "Education, of course," Stevens said. "Such a prestigious program. Tons of tradition, and I fit into the defense well. Of course, it's closer to home. It's something that I want to be a part of."
