Another state champion in the class of 2019, cornerback Kee’yon Stewart is signed, sealed, and delivered as a Carter Boy as of Wednesday am.
Stewart is a bigger corner for Gary Patterson’s defense, standing at a legit 6’ tall. The North Shore, Houston, native made his commitment Tuesday night, choosing TCU over Texas Tech and Utah down the stretch - three of the 21 offers the speedster had on the table. With 4.4 speed and a desire to seek out contact, Stewart could play either corner or safety for the Horned Frogs. He is a little reminiscent of a faster Derrick Kindred, and if he brings the intensity and leadership of Peanut, he will be beloved by teammates and fans alike.
Part of the third-highest rated recruiting class in the Big 12 Conference, Stewart is the sixth secondary player to sign in this recruiting cycle. He joins early-enrollees CB Donavann Collins (the first 2019 commit) and S Nook Bradford, both already on campus, and December signees DeShawn Mccuin and Tony Wallace in the defensive secondary for the Horned Frogs. Safety Trevius Hodges Tomlinson is expected to sign Wednesday, as well.
There is a lot to be excited about in the class of 2019, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Kee’yon is a big part of that. And winning a crucial in-state recruiting battle is always big, as well.
