Stokes is a turnover machine for Seffner, which is one of the top programs in the state of Florida. He picked off five passes in just eight games according to MaxPreps, and when you watch his highlights those picks were a result of a player with top-notch closing speed and a tremendous football IQ.
Listed at 6-2 and 180 pounds, Stokes has quality speed, but his foot quickness, flexibility and fluid hips are outstanding. His ability to read routes, his anticipation and his ball skills are as good as I’ve seen from a safety with a Notre Dame offer up to this point.
Stokes has an impressive offer list that includes Alabama (who offered on April 20), LSU, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, Auburn, Miami, Nebraska, Indiana, and Wake Forest. Stokes has also been offered by Northwestern, Duke and Vanderbilt, and claims a 3.5 GPA, so he clearly fits the Notre Dame type as a student-athlete.
