"Kansas State is on top of the list."

Kansas State received a visit from 6-1, 265-pound Xzavier Stewart from Morgan Park High School in Chicago, ( Ill. ). The defensive tackle talked about his visit to Manhattan.

"They offered me this weekend," Xzavier Stewart said of Kansas State. "They are trying to get me in their program. Right now, I am weighing my options. I have offers from Central Michigan and Cincinnati that I am considering also."

"I am looking at the program that I can be the most successful in. Right now, Kansas State is on top of the list. Most likely I am going to commit to them, but right now it is not over. It isn't carved in stone or on paper. I am staying opened up so anything can happen."

Stewart holds scholarship offers from Central Michigan, Toledo, Kansas State, Cincinnati and North Dakota.

"I have visited Central Michigan and Toledo already," he said. "They are all D-1 schools. The facilities, of course their facilities, are going to be perfect."

"They are going to be excellent, but Kansas State got a well-rounded academic program. They are going to make sure their athletics' program stands apart from the academics. All those athletes at Kansas State are getting a great education."

"The other schools really are not on top of the academics like that. Kansas State has a nice football building. Their facilities are nice, and the field is nice. They have a nice academic program, and that makes them No.1 on top right now," Stewart concluded.

Stewart says he will make his final choice on National Signing Day.
