Stewart Talks First Offer, Upcoming Camps

Sturgis (Mich.) sophomore Chance Stewart picked up what should be the first of many scholarship offers.

With his 6'5 frame, two years of varsity experience and considerable talent, scholarship offers seem destined to find their way to Sturgis High's Chance Stewart.

When Western Michigan became the first to offer yesterday though, Stewart was not thinking ahead to more, and was simply appreciative that the Broncos saw enough in him to make the move.

"It's pretty exciting, I'm not going to lie," Stewart said. "It's nice to finally get the first one. Coach called me today at lunch, told me I needed to call Western and they want to offer me a scholarship."

The fact that the first one came from a local school makes it even more special.

"They're the closest to us. I went down to camp last year and I thought I performed well."

Stewart has made Sturgis a popular stop for colleges during this spring evaluation period, as many coaches have made their way to see him.

"Yeah, Penn State, Michigan, and Michigan State have come down. Next week, Western's going to come down."

Stewart will return the favor this summer when he heads to all of those schools and more for camp.

"I'm going to Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Penn State, Ohio State and then Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan. Michigan and Michigan State both said that they want to offer a 2014 quarterback out of camp, so I want to go up, do well, and leave camp with an offer."

Today, Stewart will make an early appearance in Ann Arbor, as his schedule allowed him to make an unofficial visit.

"I'm visiting Michigan. I'm heading up [Friday]. My baseball team is going to watch the baseball game, but I'm going leave early, get a tour and meet with the coaches."
