Cameron Stewart sets visit to Nebraska

Nebraska is looking for a big-body wide receiver to round out the 2015 class and they have set their sights on Cameron Stewart. Stewart couldn't believe it when Nebraska offered and has set up an official visit to see Lincoln.

Lithonia (Ga.) Shiloh wide receiver Cameron Stewart is a big target. The 6-foot-3.5 and 190-pound receiver did what he could for his team his senior season, but it still ended early and short of the playoffs.

"My senior season is over," Stewart said. "We went 3-7. It was an O.K. season. Our quarterback got hurt and our backup hadn't played that position since 8th grade. I still went out and got after it."

Stewart saw this season that his hard work had really paid off. The UCF commitment became the standard for others to get compared to. He went on to break three school records this season.

"I think that I am happiest with my development from last year. I became that guy that coaches really talked about. I broke three school records. I broke the receiving touchdowns, receiving yards in a game and receiving yards in a career."

When you see Stewart's height on paper you figure he's a go and get it type of receiver. That's partially true. You will also see Stewart involved in the screen pass game making plays in space so you can appreciate his athleticism.

"I can actually see myself as the X, Z or even in the slot. I think that I can do it all. When I get moved around and line up at different spots I can create mismatches either against the cornerback, safety or linebacker."

The Huskers came through with an offer for Stewart just about a week ago. At first, Stewart couldn't believe that a team with that high of a ranking had called and offered. Nebraska followed up when they came to see him last week and Stewart is now planning on visiting Nebraska in two weeks.

"I got the offer from Nebraska last week," Stewart said. "At first, I didn't believe that the No. 13 team in the nation just offered me. But, my coach had just hung up with them and he said that they were definitely offering.

"The coach from Nebraska was here to see me play in my last game on Friday night. He told me that he really liked my height, liked how I played the game and how I got and get the ball. I finished the night with three receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown."
