As promised, Stewart makes more visits

Even though Antwan Stewart has committed to the University of Virginia to play football, he’s still weighing his options.

The Potomac High School senior visited Syracuse University the weekend of Dec. 8-9 and then visited the University of Tennessee last weekend.

“Virginia knew what I was doing,” said Stewart, who committed to the Cavaliers last month. “There were no secrets.”

Stewart plans on taking his official visit to Virginia the weekend of Jan 19-20. After that visit, he plans on making his decision.

High School seniors cannot sign their national letters of intent until Feb. 6.

Stewart said he decided to visit Tennessee and Syracuse because he was curious about them.

“Everyone knew what was going on,” Stewart said. “I wanted to look at the other schools. The decision’s been left up to me.”

Stewart said Tennessee is recruiting him as a defensive back, while Virginia and Syracuse are looking at him both on defense and offense.

Stewart hasn’t qualified academically, but he takes the SAT Jan. 26.

“Everything should work out,” Stewart said.

Stewart was both an all-Northwest Region and all-Cedar Run District running back and defensive back for Potomac this past season. As a running back, he finished as the area’s second-leading rusher with 1,141 yards and as the area’s leading scorer with 102 points.

In other recruiting news involving area athletes, North Stafford’s Josh Baldwin is visiting Bowling Green University this weekend.

Baldwin visited William & Mary last weekend and is scheduled to visit Ohio State next month.

Baldwin caught an area-high 84 passes for 1,036 yards and 10 touchdowns this past season. He was the Commonwealth District Offensive Player of the Year and was also selected to the all-Northwest Region and the Virginia High School Coaches Association all-state team.
