The instant Tommy Stevens entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal, a possible reunion with Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead felt somewhat obvious. Now, according to a report, Stevens could be one step closer to joining the Bulldogs.
Stevens, who is transferring from Penn State and is officially in the transfer portal, reportedly has scheduled three official visits for the next week. As reported by 247 Sports, the visits will begin with Miami Ohio this weekend and continue with a trip to Illinois at the beginning of next week. Mississippi Strate will get the last chance to make a sales pitch next Thursday.
Stevens previously played under Moorehead when the Bulldogs head coach was the offensive coordinator at Penn State. While Stevens was not a starter for the Nittany Lions, Moorhead found ways to get the athletically gifted athlete involved in the offense as a receiver, runner or passer. Penn State scaled back how much they tried getting Stevens involved last season.
Stevens will be eligible to play right away this season wherever he ends up going.
