247Sports.com has confirmed this situation through a source on both ends.

Stevenson will receive his release from Wisconsin in the morning and be eligible to attend a new school of his choice as he's an NCAA qualifier.

Stevenson will have suitors as long as he can qualify. He was originally committed to Texas before Wisconsin plus had offers from UCLA, Alabama, and Ohio State.
