Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin says Stephenson is adjusting to his new surroundings and acclimating to his new teammates — all in the relative anonymity of a college campus.
“All is quiet. Just lifting weights, getting in shape, playing every day with the guys,” Cronin said Thursday by phone from his office.
“It’s harder on his parents, him not being around, than it is on him. He’s really enjoying being out of the fishbowl a little bit. He’s part of team here. He can walk around as a normal person. He walks around here and most people don’t know who he is yet. I think he’s enjoying that.”
