Deana King' Says...

“Gabe Stephens has loved UNC for a long time and finally pulled the trigger. He is a big-time in-state kid from the Charlotte Metro area that is so loaded with prospects. He is so coveted because at his size and speed he could play several positions. He is listed as a defensive secondary player but If he adds some weight, he could even play they hybrid linebacker spot that Coach Jay Bateman uses.”
