Pat Narduzzi and his staff added a fourth recruit to their 2021 class on Wednesday evening, as Trevion Stevenson, a linebacker out of Phoebus High School in Hampton, Virginia, announced his commitment to Pitt.

“I am truly blessed to be able to bring my hard work and dedication to the University of Pittsburgh,” Stevenson wrote in a message posted on Twitter. “I would like to thank Coach Narduzzi, Coach Partridge, Coach Beatty and the rest of the coaching staff for believing in me and gifting me with this great opportunity.”
The 6’5”, 217-pound linebacker holds a three-star rating from ESPN but is considered a two-star prospect by both 247Sports and Rivals. With that said, coaches and analysts do not appear to be on the same page about Stevenson ‘s potential, as he has accrued a total of 40 scholarship offers.
Nineteen of Stevenson’s 40 reported offers came from Power Five programs, and he chose Pitt over the likes of California, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Penn State, Syracuse, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA and West Virginia.
In addition, Stevenson was previously committed to Old Dominion, which is essentially his hometown school, as it sits just 16 miles from his high school in neighboring Norfolk, Virginia. However, that commitment lasted just over a month, as he made the verbal pledge on Jan. 5 and decommitted on Feb. 9.
In 2018, Stevenson enjoyed a breakout season, as he came up with 61 tackles, including 15 tackles for losses and seven sacks. He also had two fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles. Last season, he upped his production, amassing 85 tackles, including 16 tackles for losses and 15 sacks, as well as four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
With his commitment to Pitt, Stevenson joins West Mifflin linebacker Nahki Johnson, Philadelphia defensive back Javon McIntyre and fellow Virginia native Rodney Hammond in the 2021 class.
