J-Stew Adds Two New Offers

Baton Rouge (La.) Catholic high school's Jeremy Stewart is an unknown prospect no more. Just a week removed from an offer from newly bowl bound, Kentucky, Stewart has added a handful of others.

With three offers already in hand, Baton Rouge (La.) Catholic Junior High School running back Jeremy Stewart added two more, Monday.

"I just got offered by Stanford and Northwestern," Stewart said. "That means I now have offers from UofL, Stanford, Northwestern, Kentucky and Southern Miss."

The 5-foot-10, 195 pound Stewart has made the adjustment from quarterback to tailback this season and is receiving high reviews. A recent 150-yard, 2 touchdown rushing performance in a playoff win, has caught the eyes of additional recruiters across the south.

"Right now, I have a lot of coaches that have been calling," Stewart added. "I'm getting alot of calls. The Nebraska coach has called. Memphis, Southern Miss and I talked Coach Fischer at LSU."

With a recent influx in attention, Stewart remains open to all schools. "Right now, Kentucky is one of my top schools," Stewart said. "LSU is another top school and than right now, Stanford, Nebraska and Louisville, too."

A full qualifier sporting a 3.7 grade point average and a 24 ACT score, Stewart has ran for over 1200 yards as a senior, using his powerful hips and strength to convert close to 60 first downs.

"I'm very fast and I'm pretty elusive," Stewart added. "I'm a strong runner, with good vision and am hard to bring down."

With a host of options, Stewart is looking to make a decision after his year concludes.

"I wanna go somewhere where I have a better shot of playing the earliest," Stewart added. "That's the main factor. Also, I wanna see what the campus is like and what the city around the campus is like."

The Wildcats have offered Catholic teammates Matthew Broha and Henry Minor, as well. Would the thought of playing with his teammates possibly sway Stewart to the SEC East?

"It would be nice," Stewart said. "Just knowing someone that's going to school with you would be a good factor."
