Two offers for Stewart

The Nebraska staff was in the Houston area on Monday checking out this running back. After just his first practice of the spring the Huskers extended an offer.

Lorenzo Stewart from Spring (Texas) Klein Oak is excited to be back out on the football field. His team mates have been out on the field for a couple of weeks now, but Stewart has only been out there with his team only since Monday.

"I just started practicing yesterday," Stewart said. I had been doing track up until yesterday. We had the state meet on Saturday. We got 1st in the 4x100m, I got 5th in the 100m and we also go 3rd in the 4x200m. My best 100m time is 10.45."

Stewart didn't have anything specifically that he wanted to improve at in the off-season. The 5-foot-7 and 160-pound running back said that he did want to just improve not only as a runner, but also as a receiver.

"I just needed to go out and improve. I had to improve at multiple positions too. I will be playing running back and wide receiver. My offers are both to play running back in college."

There is little doubt to Stewart what his strength is on the football field: speed. He says that he can stick his leg in the dirt, make a cut and get up to his top gear quickly. Those skills as a running back work great in the Klein Oak offense.

"I'm a speed guy. I can get in and out of the cuts quickly. We run a spread and they use me a lot of different ways. I do a lot of zone read, some read option and we run a lot of stretch plays to the outside."

There are two offers on the table right now for Stewart. He says that he hasn't really thought about the offers individually at all. He says that the offense that a school runs and how it might feature him will be big in his decision.

"I have two offers right now, Baylor and Nebraska. It feels good to know that I have four more years to play football at least. I am definitely looking at the offenses to see if I am a good fit or not."

Since Stewart had track there really wasn't a chance to make any trips this spring. He also says that he doesn't have any planned at the moment either. "I haven't taken any trips this spring," Stewart said. "I don't have any trips planned as of right now. That might change."

The Huskers are the second team to offer Stewart. That offer came yesterday after Stewart's first practice of the spring. He said that the running back coach from Nebraska was there at his school and has been communicating with him a lot recently over social media.

"I got the offer from Nebraska on Monday after practice. Coach Ron Brown was here from Nebraska. We have been exchanging messages a lot over Facebook. He seems pretty cool and laid back."
