Stevenson Still Interested In A&M

Stevenson Still Interested In A&M

Klein Oak (TX) tight end Max Stevenson is quickly becoming a hot commodity in 2011. The highly recruited hybrid tight end hasn't received the kind of attention he would like from Texas A&M, but now that Jace Amaro is off of the table, expect the Aggies to make a hard push for the 6-foot-6, 230-pound athlete.

Klein Oak (TX) tight end Max Stevenson is quickly becoming a hot commodity in 2011. The highly recruited hybrid tight end hasn't received the kind of attention he would like from Texas A&M, but now that Jace Amaro is off of the table, expect the Aggies to make a hard push for the 6-foot-6, 230-pound athlete.

"Right now, I'm hearing a lot from OU along with LSU, Texas Tech, Baylor, Notre Dame, and Missouri," said Stevenson. "Out of those schools, Texas Tech, LSU, and Notre Dame are sticking out the most at the moment."

Max has been on the road just about every weekend this spring trying to visit as many schools as possible.

"Actually, I've been pretty busy this spring with recruiting. I went up to Texas Tech's junior day, a junior day at Notre Dame, and LSU's spring game," said Stevenson. "The best situation for me right now is Texas Tech. It's a really good playing time situation because they don't have many tight ends."

Texas Tech is probably the early leader for Stevenson, but that could change with the Red Raider's picking up a recent commitment from San Antonio MacArthur's Jace Amaro.

"They [Texas Tech] told me at the beginning when they offered me that they are looking for one [tight end] but they may take two. They are not pulling their offer just because Jace committed. I talked to them are they are still very interested in me."

A&M's recruitment of Stevenson has been somewhat strange. Even though A&M hasn't showed the type of interest Max would like, he understands scholarships are limited for the Aggies next year.

"I've heard from them but what's interesting about that is, as you know, they don't have a lot of scholarships to give out this year. The guy that was recruiting my area is gone so there is a new guy recruiting me. As far as any contact, I've been invited to their junior days and spring practices, but I haven't had the chance to talk to Coach Kragthorpe yet. My coach called them about a month ago and asked them what they thought about me. They said right now they were focusing on defensive players. My coach told me that A&M was interested in me but not to the point to give an offer."

With Jamie McCoy graduating, you would think Stevenson would be recruited as a true tight end. That doesn't seem to be the case.

"The [A&M coaches] contacted my coach a week later and said they may be looking at me at receiver. The word is now that Jace Amaro is off the table, A&M is going to be looking at me harder. I don't know, we'll see."

"No school at the moment is looking at me at receiver. I wouldn't rule out playing receiver. I don't mind at all."

Stevenson intends to give A&M a fair look.

"A&M is close to home. The team is building, they are getting much better, and they are on the rise for sure. I'm going to give them a good look if they start to show some sincere interest," said Stevenson. "I want to get back to their campus. I haven't been there since my freshman year when I was up there for a quarterback camp, back when I played QB."

Stevenson was slated to be in Lubbock for their spring game, but Max has decided to be in Norman for Oklahoma's spring game.
