He talked about the decision he has to make after the team’s bowl victory against USC on Friday:

Read into it what you will. Perhaps his mind is made up and he wants to make it official. Or, he truly doesn’t know just yet.

As a junior in 2019, Stone amassed 70 tackles, four pass deflections and three forced fumbles. Again, as a safety.
