Dimingus Stevens, a class of 2020 shooting guard at Woodrow Wilson (DC), followed up a strong sophomore year by providing consistently efficient play this summer with 16U Team Takeover, and we expect him to carry that momentum into what should be another productive campaign with the Tigers. The 6-foot-5 wing, who is currently being touted by several mid to high major division one programs, is without question a top-tier scoring option among his classmates in the DMV region. During a recent interview with Prep Hoops, Stevens outlined his overall game and future goals while also touching on his recruitment.
