Wide receivers coach Mike Denbrock on Stepherson: "Unfortunately for Kevin, he’s way undervalued in this recruiting class. From whatever perspective that people gave him a certain rating or talked about him a certain way.

"Kevin is a dynamic football player who has as good a set of hands and ball skills as we have on our football team right now. His ability to get in and out of breaks, quick feet, explosiveness at the wide receiver position is something that I think is going to add to our football team, and he’s going to be a dynamic player for us.

"Kevin being here right now is going to be tremendous for him just from a learning standpoint and giving him a leg up on what we’re doing as we move through spring."
