"They all have my degree, which is pharmacy," said Stewart. "They all have a good football program in which I have a chance to come in as true freshman."
During his weekend visit in Minneapolis, Stewart met with the Gopher coaching staff, including head coach Jerry Kill.
In mid-October, Northwestern—as well as three other schools—jumped in with an offer for the athletic safety, after seeing his first-half highlight film.
Stewart said Northwestern isn't necessarily out of the picture, but he has not had contact with the NU coaches, making the Wildcats' chances slim.
"It's a very prestigious academic school, so it's still on my list," Stewart said. "I don't have that much contact with them. That's the main problem."
Stewart's verbal commitment is likely to come after his final visit, at Iowa.
"I'm trying to make a decision fast," he said. "I have a Mizzou official this week then Iowa after that. I'm trying to make a decision here soon."
During his senior season, Stewart showcased his versatility, while catching the eyes of college coaches across the country. He played running back, receiver, linebacker, and safety, while serving as a kick returner and punt returner, too.
Stewart rose to become Scout's 54th-ranked safety, thanks to his breakout season.
