Jihree Stewart is a physical corner and one of the top DBs in the West. He reminds a lot of people of former Husky corner and USC signee John Plattenburg in terms of his size, toughness and style of play.
Stewart took an unofficial visit to Oregon just two days ago and obviously loved what he saw and decided to shut things down.
"He really liked Oregon and had been leaning there for a while," Husky coach Matt Logan said. "He really liked the coaches, they have been there a long time and he knows they'll be there his whole time at Oregon as well.
"Most of them have been there for over 10 years so he had that security. He likes the football program a lot and feels they could really help him reach his max potential. He also plans to major in Sports Business and that's one of Oregon's top majors. They have great alumni support in that area and he'll have some great options after he's done with football."
He's a well built 5-11, 175 pounds and excels in press coverage when he can beat up an opposing receiver. He's more quick than fast but is a good all around athlete, very competitive and like all Husky players, has an edge to him.
Stewart, whose older brother Dres Anderson stars at receiver for Utah, had offers from most of the Pac 12 including Arizona State, Colorado, Oregon State, Utah, Washington and Washington State. Boise State, Duke, Fresno State, Northwestern and Wisconsin had also offered.
He's commitment No. 5 for the Ducks and currently rated the No. 45 corner in the nation. He'll join former Husky Cameron Hunt in Oregon, who started as a true freshman last season.
