Stewart Still “Highly” Interested In U-M

Michigan has found early success under Harbaugh in the Garden State, but still is looking for even more. The Wolverines have maintained steady contact with Paramus (N.J) Catholic senior wide receiver Donald Stewart. The Michigan Insider caught up with the talented youngster recently to discuss his recent interaction with the Wolverines, his feelings on the Maize & Blue, and much more

Michigan has already hauled in two wide receiver commits from the Garden State in in Brad Hawkins and Ahmir Mitchell, and continues to pursue yet another in longtime Paramus (NJ) Catholic senior pass-catcher Donald Stewart.

“I talked with Coach Harbaugh (Sunday),” Stewart told The Michigan Insider. “He just gave me some tips on the season as far as being a leader, making big plays and just doing whatever it takes to make the team better as a whole. He also wanted to confirm my official visit.”

The 6-3, 185-pounder confirmed back in August his intention to officially visit Ann Arbor for the Ohio State game. His eagerness to be on hand for the match up has't waned one bit.


“I’ve been excited since early August,” said Stewart of his Michigan official. “It’s right around my birthday too!”

Stewart stated his interest in the Maize & Blue is as strong as it ever was, and a big reason for that is his connection with Jim Harbaugh.

“We have a great relationship,” said Stewart. “It is probably the best out of all the other coaches I’ve spoken with. We talk via Twitter daily and I’ve spoken to him on the phone twice since September too. He’s just very enthusiastic and knows the game and we get along very well.”

That, however, shouldn't be taken to mean that Stewart is a lock for the Wolverines.

“No, I’m still open to everyone right now,” said Stewart. “I’m enjoying the process and trying to visit as many schools as possible before I make a tough decision. I’m not sure exactly when I might make that decision though.”
