The Missouri Tigers have been evaluating prospects to add to their 2012 recruiting class in football…
Stewart Has First Offer, More on the Way?
After transferring to O'Fallon High School in Illinois from Fork Union Academy in Virginia, Ka'ra Stewart has made a big impact for the team and has helped them get to 6-1 this season. The 6'0, 190-lb senior's speed and aggressiveness has been an asset at both running back and linebacker. Because of all the moving around, recruiting was slower to come, but took a big step this week when he earned his first offer from Missouri. "It was exciting," Stewart said. "It was unexpected. I was completely surprised when coach told me and called me. It was crazy." While this is the first offer, there are many other schools that are interested and may eventually add to the offer list. "I've heard from Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Eastern Illinois, Southeast Missouri, those are just a few. I just got back from SeMo two weeks ago. I went and visited there and had a couple friends down there. I talked to the coaches and watched the game." While he has been to Southeast Missouri, he has not yet been to Mizzou, but that should change. "I was planning on going there very soon. I'm heading out there soon to see a game." While he plays many positions, Stewart was offered by the Tigers as a safety, and says he has developed a good rapport with the coaching staff. "I've talked to Coach Ford just about every week. They have my degree, which is pharmacy. Everything's real nice there. I like their defense, and I want to go see campus and watch a game there." With the offer blindsiding him this week, Stewart admits he has not considered a decision at this time. "I haven't really thought about it yet, I'm taking it as it comes right now. I have to sit down with my parents and decide that and make the best choice for the future."
