Clent Stewart Heads for Final Visit

Clent Stewart canceled one visit and moved up his final one this weekend. One school will be hard to beat for the Tulsa Union (Okla.) floor leader's services.

Clent Stewart has already taken a trio of official visits and was slated to take one to South Carolina this weekend. However, the Tulsa Union (Okla.) senior floor leader decided to cancel his upcoming trip and push up his final one to nearby Tulsa.

``I felt like I'm already looking at one school in the SEC in Vanderbilt and Vandy is more of what I'm looking for, so I didn't want to waste the coaches time at South Carolina," Stewart said. ``I'll visit Tulsa instead."

Stewart has already gone to Kansas State, Stanford and just returned from a trip to Vanderbilt this past weekend. However, this week's visit could be the difference-maker as speculation continues to surface that Stewart will likely stay home and play at Tulsa.

``That's the word," Stewart said. "But then again a lot of people thought I'd sign with Oklahoma when they offered me last year and I didn't.

Stewart will likely take a day or two after he gets back from the 15-mile trip from the Tulsa campus and talk the decision over with his family.

``Academics will play a major factor," he said. "I'll also look at how much I'll be able to see my family and how much they can see me play."

Stewart also said that his mother has recently been sick and that could affect his decision to remain close to home.

``I'm trying to stay open-minded until after this weekend and then sit down and weigh the pros and cons of each program," he added.

While Stewart maintained there is no leader, he also admitted that playing time will be a factor and that the best chances he has of breaking into the starting lineup are at Tulsa and Vanderbilt.
