Gage is a rising junior and still has plenty of development even though he is already a five-star recruit as a rising junior.
Stacy Gage received his first collegiate offer from Penn State University in December of 2020. He has earned a plethora of power five offers since then. The running back holds offers from Florida State, Georgia, Auburn, Miami, Oregan, LSU, Alabama, Michigan, and many more.
