12 for ’12: Cougars add another to next year’s recruiting class
The Cougars snagged their 12th commitment for their 2012 recruiting class with the addition of Trevon Stewart.
Stewart, a receiver/cornerback from Patterson High School (La.), made the announcement today after participating in a UH mini camp for high schoolers.
According to Mike Coppage of Scout.com, Stewart said that he was leaning towards UH before the camp, but feeling comfortable with the coaching staff sealed the deal.
Stewart ranked as a three-star prospect by ESPN with a 75 scouting grade. He is the Cougars second highest ranked prospect for 2012 behind four-start lineman Mac Long.
He played running back, receiver and cornerback in high school and proved to be a playmaker at each position. As a junior last season, he gained 261 yards on 27 carries and 205 yards on nine receptions, scoring three touchdowns on the ground and four through the air. On defense he recorded 102 tackles and picked off five passes. He will most likely transition to defense full-time in college. He is also an able returner, taking seven punts for 139 yards and one touchdown.
Stewart also had offers from Memphis, SMU, Tulane, Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech and Louisiana-Lafayette.
