Brad Stewart, 4-star and No. 6 CB in the South, earns Alabama offer from Nick Saban at camp

Scout300 Louisiana cornerback Brad Stewart half-expected to walk away from Alabama's camp with a scholarship offer and that's exactly what went down.

The Alabama Crimson Tide nearly signed New Orleans (La.) McDonogh 35 defender Sci Martin in the 2016 cycle. Now it will look to do the same with McDonogh 35 rising-senior Brad Stewart.

The Scout300 prospect, who can play in many places within a secondary, camped in Tuscaloosa Monday and then had a meeting with Nick Saban.

"He was telling me that I can play as a corner or safety but if I start out I'd play the nickel position," he said. "Then he told me that we were going to offer you a scholarship. 

"It kind of wasn't a surprise, the coaches have tried to get me up to the camp. They just wanted to see me play football."

Stewart has had some very successful camp stops in the spring and it is carrying over into the summer. The offer from the defending champions was long coveted.  

"It's big, real big. It's pretty high on the list," he said. "My highlight tape shows that I'm a football player and a track star, so they want to see me show that I'm as good as I think I am." 

With considerable offers throughout the SEC and ACC, including FloridaMississippiFlorida State and others, there is no rush to make a decision. The next trip isn't even planned, but looking back at the Monday at Alabama helped him gauge what it would be like to play for the program.

"The coaches were great, I picked up on a few good tips and all," Stewart said. "The coaches are all about business. Ain't nothing wrong with winning championships."

The top cornerback prospect in Louisiana doesn't claim any favorites at this stage of the recruiting process.
