Get a win, get a commitment the next day. Sounds like a good strategy from here on out.
Per IMS via Twitter, Ralph Friedgen and Maryland football just received their 15th commitment for the 2011 cycle from Cape Coral, FL, athlete Jimmy Stewart.
There's not a lot on Stewart out on the 'net; he has almost nothing in his Rivals profile, no evaluation on ESPN, and his Scout profile has little going on. What we do know is that he's a 6-3, 200 pound prospect that plays DE and WR for his HS team down in South Florida. He had offers from Colorado State and Utah State, apparently landing one from Maryland after a summer of touring various camps.
He's listed everywhere from wide receiver to defensive end to tight end to outside linbacker, so there's a lot of flexibility as to where he ends up. That's not a bad thing, especially as Maryland's defense slims down. He supposedly can run a 4.51 and is building up to 220 pounds, a size/speed combination that would be very respectable at either TE or OLB, or even DE if he can build up strength. With only one linebacker in tow for 2011 so far, my guess is that he ends up there. We'll see.
