ESPN 300 linebacker Freddie Stevenson (Bartow, Fla./Bartow) is nearing the end of a chapter.

In a matter of just a few weeks, the four-star prospect will forego his final semester in high school to enroll early at Florida State and begin his collegiate career. Last week, head coach Jimbo Fisher paid Stevenson an in-home visit to clear up any logistical hypotheticals.

"It was exciting," Stevenson said. "They were making sure I had everything ready for January, since I am going to be enrolling in January. They were also talking about how important it was for me to enroll early."
