Stewart Still Works for Offer

Tyler Stewart, the 6-3, 210-pound quarterback prospect from Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon, came to UCLA's summer camp in hopes of getting a UCLA scholarship offer, and he's still working toward that goal...

Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon three-star quarterback Tyler Stewart (6-3, 210) has two scholarship offers, but has put himself in a position to land more offers by remaining uncommitted and getting off to a good start his senior year.

"I still have the offers from San Jose State and Bowling Green," said Stewart. "And I've been talking a lot with Nevada, UCLA and USC. None of them have taken a quarterback yet, and they all are watching me."

Stewart camped at each of those three schools and all said they'd be watching the start of his season

Stewart commented on each of them:

UCLA -- "UCLA is in a nice area, it's close to home and the school's education is good. They said they would be coming out to one of the first two or three games, I'm not sure which one, but they'll be there to watch me. I talk with Coach (Clark) Lea and have talked with Coach (Rick) Neuheisel. I was at their practice (on Saturday)."

Nevada -- "Nevada, I really liked the area and they have a good program. They want to watch the first couple of games, too."

USC -- "I talk with Coach (Clay) Helton and he said he wanted film of the first three games. They seem to be really interested but I don't know if they're taking a quarterback this year."

Meanwhile, San Jose State is staying in regular contact with Stewart.

"San Jose State is willing to let me wait on my commitment," said Stewart. "I'm the only quarterback they've offered. I took an unofficial there and I enjoyed that. It was nice. The coaches were great."

Bowling Green was the first offer for Stewart, and Stewart has quite a bit in common with the current Bowling Green quarterback, Matthew Schilz. Both are from a SoCal small school, and both are Steve Clarkson protégés.

"I could take an official there to Bowling Green," said Stewart. "It's kind of nice when you're the only quarterback a school recruits."

Academically, Stewart said he's fully qualified.

In 2010, Stewart threw for 2,800 yards, 39 touchdowns and was named First Team All-League and First Team All-CIF.
