Stewart is your prototypical David Gibbs Cornerback in terms of size, although he’s a bit slight (he’s got plenty of time to add weight), but this is exactly what we should expect from David Gibbs, Clay Jennings and Brett Dewhurst.
RedRaiderSports’ Matt Clare talked to Stewart (there’s a lot there to check out):
“I made my decision later that night, after the offer” Stewart said. “I talked with my Dad and he thought it was a great opportunity for me. He liked the visit a lot and really wanted me to choose Tech from the start. I actually told the coaches that night and let them know through text messages.
“They were all excited and we got to talk about it more while having breakfast at the hotel this morning. After breakfast, I went to meet with Coach (Kliff) Kingsbury and told him about my commitment. He pulled me in and gave me a big ol’ hug, I could tell he was excited. We talked about the academic side and taking advantage of the opportunity on both sides.”
Stewart is pretty physical and has no issue with playing physically, which is great and pretty rare. Stewart also isn’t afraid to play the ru and maybe the thing that I like most of all is how he switches fluidly on receivers in coverage. That’s a pretty cool trick in high school. I like Stewart’s run support and he’ll go stride-for-stride on most receivers. I presume that North Shore plays some pretty decent competition.
