After making a recent visit, senior Jeshawn Stevenson knew it was time to make his commitment. Earlier this week, the 6’4” guard of Lindblom Academy in Chicago and Meanstreets announced his commitment to Cleveland State. 

Stevenson took his official visit to the Horizon League the weekend of September 23-24. “It was amazing,” he first said about the visit. “Got to see around the campus and the dorms. As well I met some players from my area.” 

While he was planning on taking a couple of visits following the Cleveland State visit, including to Brown and Yale, Stevenson knew it was time to make his decision. “I committed before I left. It just felt right.” When asked about what he likes about Cleveland State, Stevenson said “I love the coaching staff and how relatable they were to me.”

“I see myself developing a bunch,” he said about his game fitting it at Cleveland State. “Being in that atmosphere of work every day. I don’t see how I don’t improve. As well as with the coaches trusting and believing in me the sky’s the limit.”

Stevenson picked the Vikings over his other offers coming from Northern Illinois, St. Louis University, and Yale. Cleveland State had offered him back in June of this year. During his time on the Nike EYBL this year with the Meanstreets, he averaged 9.4 points along with 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. From his 2024 Meanstreets team he joins KJ Windham (Northwestern), Tyler Ode (Toledo), Morez Johnson (Illinois), Carlos Harris (UIC), and Nojus Indrusaitis (Iowa State) who are committed.
