Stewart Talks Recruiting

Things have picked up on the recruiting front for 2017 Riverside LB Silas Stewart (6-3, 220) and he updated JCFootball.com recently on where things stand...


"I don't have any new offers, but I've met with a few coaches," Stewart said. "I've had an offer from Prairie View A&M for a while and I've started to talk a lot with Cincinnati, Bowling Green, East Carolina and South Florida.

"I'm working on setting up visits with USF and ECU and both of them seem like they could be close to offering."

As a sophomore last season, Stewart finished with 43 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 6.5 tackles-for-loss and nine pass breakups while playing outside linebacker for the Tigers.

"I was a strong side linebacker so I blitzed a lot and was in coverage a lot," Stewart noted. "I feel like I rush the passer and cover very well.

"I think it's just athleticism and practice. I work at it in practice and it becomes second nature in the game."

Stewart enjoyed a solid career at Howard High School in Wilmington, Deleware, but was unable to qualify, so he decided to head west and said Riverside was the best program he could find.

"I came to Riverside because of their history of putting out great linebackers," Stewart said.

The sophomore will finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have two years to play two starting this fall.
