On the Hoof: May be one the prettiest-looking prospects at any position in the country. Steward has a body-builder's upper body and athletic lower body. He is built like 2010 Florida State signee Jeff Luc, but a bit thinner.
Needs Improvement: Sometimes he is too aggressive in run support, leaving him vulnerable to play-action passes.
Most Impressive: This big, fast athlete plays downhill and has the size and strength to lift ball carriers out of their shoes. Even though he is extremely muscular, he has the hips and speed to cover almost any running back. Steward's size is ideal for any three of the linebacker positions.
Conclusion: He is a difference-maker, and should have an impact the minute he shows up on campus. Do not be surprised if he ends up being a three-and-done player at the next level.
