Film Study: Darrell Stewart

Taking a look at the film of the latest Michigan State commit: Houston (Texas) Nimitz wide receiver Darrell Stewart

Michigan State hit on the 14th member of its 2015 recruiting class Sunday night, as Houston (Texas) Nimitz wide receiver Darrell Stewart made his commitment after an official visit.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver is the second wide receiver in the class. We take a look at his film and what kind of player the Spartans are getting:

The Good

Stewart shows a great first burst off the line and covers a lot of ground quickly. He carries that speed well down the field and takes long strides.

He also has great quickness in and out of his breaks, making him a slippery player to try and cover downfield. That shiftiness continues when he gets the ball in his hands. Stewart is a true playmaker with the ball as he is elusive, makes good cuts and finds ways to advance the ball.

He plays all over in the defensive secondary as well and plays quarterback. He essentially is a solid wildcat quarterback, as his running ability out of the backfield makes him dangerous.

On defense, he shows the same speed he does on offense and covers a lot of area.

The Bad

There is no doubt about Stewart’s ability with the ball, but as is the case with most wide receiver film, it does not give a good idea of how good he is without the ball. An offense like Michigan State’s requires locking and as not the biggest wideout, he needs to have a strong mentality to be a factor in the blocking game.
