Aggie Websider's David Sandhop attended this weekend's Texas State 7-on-7 Tournament. One player that Sandhop observed and scouted was Texas A&M QB commit Kohl Stewart from St. Pius High School (TX). Here's his report.
The first thing that comes to mind when watching Kohl Stewart is arm strength. I'm sure somebody over the 15 years I've watched state 7-on-7 had a stronger arm, but nobody comes to mind. Not only can he make every throw including long outs to the sideline, but he does it so effortlessly. The one play that sticks out was a long pass the length of the field from the first 20-yard line to the end zone that was a beautiful spiral that hit the receiver over the top for a TD. It wasn't just the long TD completion that blew me away, it's the fact that he literally flicked the ball with little effort some 40+ yards in the air. He barely even had to shift his weight on the throw.
Sometimes I think it comes too easy for Kohl as he'll try to force balls on difficult throws and will get the occasional interception. His issue at the next level is playing within himself, keep his emotions in check, and take what's given to him versus trying to hit the home run. How will he react when those windows of opportunity get smaller and smaller. Does he get frustrated and try to force passes, or does he learn to be more patient?
But make no mistake...this kid is as gifted a passer as I've seen in years. His potential is through the roof, but he needs to realize that it won't be this easy at the next level and that sometimes avoiding mistakes is just as important as throwing the 30-yard frozen rope completion.
