Stewart said he has bean hearing from North Carolina State but wanted to check out the new U of L staff and the school before any kind of decision on making a visit there.
And after a weekend official visit to U of L, it sounds like Stewart knows where he'll sign a letter-of-intent on Feb. 5.
"I still have to think on it a little bit," Stewart said. "But I am really solid with Louisville right now.
"I liked everything about it. I didn't commit there because of just the coaches, so it wasn't a big a deal (with the staff change). I like the facilities and the town. I just like it a lot."
The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Stewart, ranked as the No. 62 linebacker in the country by Scout.com, is expected to sign on Feb. 5 and enroll in June.
"The visit went just great," he said. "What impressed me the most was the players and their attitudes towards next season and how they're confident they can win it all. I love how the players are so hungry to succeed."
Stewart said the night he heard Charlie Strong was leaving U of L for Texas was "a little hectic," but he got through it all.
"I consulted with my family and just made sure I kept talking to them," he said. "It's all worked out and I'm excited."
