Scored a hat-trick on Worcester Warriors debut
"I'm delighted to welcome a player of Max's ability to the club," said Jersey boss Ben Harvey.
"I had very good reports of him, and he impressed as soon as he got on the training field after flying in.
"I'm keen to see what Max can do in a match environment and how he fits into the team, so it's my intention to involve him against Leinster."
Stelling joins Jersey as they battle to avoid relegation in their first ever season in the second tier of English rugby.
