Schools chase FSU pledge Tony Stevens

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Florida State is quietly putting together one of the more impressive recruiting classes for 2013, including commitments from three very talented wide receivers. Tony Stevens (Orlando, Fla./Evans) has been committed to FSU for five months, and he is excited about the chance to showcase his skills at Champion Gridiron Kings at Walt Disney World.

“It feels good to have a chance to come out here and show people what Florida State is all about,” Stevens said. “I have been working on my speed, and my route-running is a lot better than it was as a junior.”

Two programs have not given up in their pursuit of the ESPN 300 wideout.

“Ohio State and South Carolina are still coming after me,” Stevens said. “I plan to take official visits to both schools.”

The Buckeyes or Gamecocks could have their work cut out for them in their attempt to pry away the four-star prospect.

“I like teams with good defense and team chemistry and Florida State has both,” Stevens said. “This class I am a part of is loaded with talent and I have become good friends with Isaiah Jones (Milton, Fla./Milton) and Ryan Green (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Petersburg Catholic). They are both really quick players, but they are also both cool and funny off the field.”
