Stewart Preparing Early Playing Time

Michigan commitment <b>Charles Stewart</b> fills GBW in on his visit to Ann Arbor and his plans for the off-season.

Farmington Hills Harrison’s Charles Stewart (6-1.5, 188lbs. 4.47) was very productive on both sides of the ball in his final prep season. On the ground he racked up 1400 yards and 28 TDs rushing, while through the air he had 25 catches for 289 yards 2 TDs. On defense he had 48 tackles and 4 interceptions. With numbers like those the young man is definitely in the running for top all-around player in the state. Charles took his official visit this past weekend and learned a great deal about what role he’s expected to play next year.

Who was your host on your visit?

"Brandent Englmon."

What did you guys do?

“Friday we went to a party. Saturday there wasn’t much going on so we went to the game and hung around in the dorms with Morgan Trent and Anton Campbell and a lot of other players.”

Did you get a chance to spend a lot of time with Coach English?

“I talked to all of the coaches, but I spent a lot time with Coach Malone. He took me around campus. I also spent time with Coach English. We talked quite a bit and he took us to meet his family. He basically told me what he’s expecting from me next year and where I am on the depth chart. He told me to get prepared because he’s looking for me to come in and play right away. He also talked with me about my technique…mainly my footwork.”

What are your offseason plans?

“I’m starting indoor track this week. Right now I’m lifting, and I’ll probably run for my school in the spring. In the indoor I’ll probably run the 60m and the 200m and in the outdoor I’ll run the 100m and the 200m.”

You and Jamar Adams became good friends after camp. Are you still confident that he’ll end up at Michigan even though he’s taking visits?

“I talked to him about his visits and he told me he was only doing that for the visits. We really want to play together and I’m pretty sure he’s going to end up here.”
