Report: 5-star athlete JaCoby Stevens has ‘major interest’ in Michigan

May 6, 2016

ANN ARBOR – In what’s highly unlikely to be a coincidence, Michigan scheduled a satellite camp in Murfreesboro, Tenn., at Oakland High School, the home of five-star recruit JaCoby Stevens.

Michigan’s interest in the Stevens, who is ranked as the No. 1 2017 athlete in the nation, is apparently reciprocated, even though he didn’t place the Wolverines among his recent list of finalists.

“I’d say I still have major interest in Michigan,” Stevens, a former LSU commit, told 247 Sports. “They’ve still been recruiting me pretty hard actually.”

Oakland coach Kevin Creasy announced the June 14 camp via Twitter on Thursday. It’s the latest satellite camp announced in Michigan’s summer tour that, at last count, is tentatively scheduled to be at 15 camps in 13 states during June.

“It’s great for Oakland football that Michigan is taking the time to come to our school,” Stevens told 247 Sports. “It will be a really great time for my teammates and I to work with and learn about the Michigan program from their coaching staff. I’m definitely excited about it.”

Stevens, who checks in at 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, holds 32 offers. He’s the No. 1 athlete in the nation and the No. 25 overall recruit, according to 247 Sports Composite rankings. On April 3, he tweeted a top seven of Georgia, LSU, Florida State, Florida, Tennessee, USC and Oklahoma.
