Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a junior. Led the team in rushing every season since his freshman season, most recently totaling 189 attempts/854 yards/4 TDs as a senior with 45 receptions and 571 receiving yards. Junior totals included career-best rushing numbers of 290/1318/10.
Positives: Swift, elusive ballcarrier with the ability to create his own yardage. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and displays a terrific burst through the hole. Plays with great quickness, runs low to the ground and is small enough to squirt through the small openings of the defense. Keeps his feet moving on contact and changes direction without losing momentum. Turns it up the field and consistently runs North/South. Will pick and choose his spots on the inside, quickly gets through the cutback lanes and avoids piles or makes defenders miss. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
Negatives: Lacks top speed and the ability to beat defenders around the outside. Easily tackled by a single opponent.
Analysis: Stewart is small yet elusive and a tough skill player that tries to squeeze as much yardage as possible every time the ball is in his hands. He could be used as a third-down back at the next level if he can return punts.
