Ardarius Stewart visits practice

Ardarius Stewart, National 100 wide receiver from Birmingham-Fultondale, Ala., gave an early commitment to the University of Alabama in late January. He attended practice Monday afternoon in Tuscaloosa.

"I went to Alabama's practice yesterday," said Ardarius Stewart. "It was the first time I've ever been to one of their practices. They move fast. Nobody was walking around. Everyone was fast-paced.

"I was impressed with everyone. I am going to try to make it back down there tomorrow for practice. I am definitely going back on Saturday for the scrimmage."

Stewart accounted for 50 touchdowns during his junior season and earned Class 2A Back of the Year. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound athlete spent time observing several positions.

"I watched the QBs, wide receivers, special teams and defensive backs," Stewart said. "I watched them all. Everyone was hustling. You can tell they are a team. Everyone is on the same page. I haven't decided yet which position I want to play."

Stewart spoke briefly with the coaches while keeping a close eye on the team. He was eager to learn any tips to take back home and implement as a senior.

"When I went down there they told me they were happy to see me," Stewart said. "They were just really glad I came. I walked around to the different positions and watched everyone. I was just watching some of the positions I play in high school."
