Josh Stewart Makes The Change To OSU

We'll have to do some research on it but has Oklahoma State ever had three commitments from one high school in the same recruiting class? The reason is head coach Mike Gundy and his staff do have three commitments from one school now that highly regarded wide receiver/cornerback Josh Stewart has de-committed from Texas A&M and switched to Oklahoma State, according to Guyer head coach John Walsh.

Coach Walsh told Go Pokes that Stewart has joined fellow Guyer standouts in quarterback J.W. Walsh and defensive end Jimmy Bean in pledging to the Cowboys.

"It all happened so fast," said John Walsh. "Oklahoma State came in last night and offered Josh and he de-committed from Texas A&M and committed to Oklahoma State this morning."

Stewart has had a stellar season for Guyer (12-2) as the Wildcats prepare for a semifinal game on Saturday at SMU's Ford Stadium taking on Longview in the Class 5A Division II bracket.

Stewart is a 5-10, 175-pound speedster that is a playmaker for the Wildcats.

"When Oklahoma State offered we kind of thought something would happen because they were Josh's number one school in recruiting for a lot of reasons," added Walsh.

"Before he was committed to Texas A&M, and early in the recruiting process, he had gone with J.W. on a visit up there (Oklahoma State) and liked everything about it. He is really, really good friends with J.W. and with Jimmy, so it makes it real easy for those guys to go up there together," John Walsh added.

This season has been stellar for Stewart as he is the leading receiver for Guyer with 44 receptions for 833 yards and eight touchdowns. On defense at corner, he has 70 total tackles with five interceptions and 11 passes broken up. He is also averaging 15 yards per punt return this season and took one back the distance for a score in the playoff win over Abilene Cooper.

Last season starting at corner he finished with 62 tackles and five interceptions. Again, Stewart and Guyer will battle Longview in the Class 5A Division II semifinal at Ford Stadium on the SMU campus at noon on Saturday.

We told Walsh we appreciate him calling back and his cooperation. As for Josh Stewart, we will wait and talk with him this weekend after Guyer plays its semifinal game against Longview. We know that may be "old school" but that is the way we have always run our site, with complete respect for those coaches and teams that are involved in competition or playoff action.
