A projected slot receiver, Bracey overcomes his smaller frame (5-10 and 160 pounds) by his speed. Being clocked at 10.89 in the 100-meter dash and 4.34 in the 40-yard dash. In an interview with Rivals.com, high school coach Marty Martens, a former Western Michigan athlete, said Bracey can break down press coverage because of his athleticism.

“Stephan is an instinctive, explosive and dynamic football player,” Martens said. “I’ve never been around anyone like him in my 30 years of coaching. He has really great vision and can see holes and lanes before they open up. He already knows when stuff is going to take place on the field and he’s made a lot of people look foolish this year.”

On the first play of his junior highlights, Bracey comes in motion, takes the handoff at the snap on a jet sweep and uses his speed and instincts to weave his way through traffic and hits another gear to go 70 yards for a touchdown. His second highlight is nearly a carbon copy, only this time he only had to weave 55 yards to the end zone. UW hasn’t relied heavily on the jet sweep this season, using Aron Cruickshank and Kendric Pryor sparingly, but Bracey’s skill set will allow him to jump right into the mix.

From the slot position, when Bracey comes out of his break and catches the ball in stride, good luck. With good vision, Bracey could be an early impact player.
