Oklahoma State secured the commitment of three star tight end Quinton Stewart on Tuesday. The Salina, Kansas, product picked Oklahoma State over offers from in-state Kansas and Iowa State. Several other schools including Kansas State have shown interest.
Super grateful to be able to announce that I have committed to Oklahoma State University. Very thankful to be able to further my athletic and academic career there. Special thanks to @JasonMcEndoo for helping me make Stillwater home. pic.twitter.com/gip1OvBfm8— Quinton Stewart (@quintonstew19) June 18, 2019
Listed as a tight end, Stewart will slide into the “Cowboy Back” role at OSU, where he could more closely resemble someone like Jelani Woods. Stewart is a physical blocker, but runs his routs similar to that of a wide receiver according to 247.
Securing a physical pass catcher should help in short down situations. Woods caught seven passes last year with five of them going for first downs. Stewart will likely mirror that role by being a physical blocker who is also a capable pass catcher at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds.
Stewart’s commitment brings the class total to 12, good for second in the Big 12 and No. 25 nationally. The 12 commits is tied for second in the Big 12, only behind OU’s 13.
