It didn't take long after Sierra Canyon quarterback Tyler Stewart decided to to San Jose State.
Now he's bound for the University of Nevada Wolf Pack of the WAC Conference.
"I really feel like he is a major Division I guy," Sierra Canyon Coach Jon Ellinghouse told the Montgomery Advertiser. "He's an exceptional athlete. He's very athletic for his size (6-foot-3, 210 pounds). He has exceptional arm strength. He can really stretch the field. He's become a very, very smart quarterback. He reads defenses great. And he does a really good job taking care of the ball."
In the last few weeks Stewart began to get more offers, so he considered Colorado State, Hawaii and Fresno State which all offered scholarships.
"I wanted to re-open and make the right decision for me," Stewart told the Advertiser. "I was just more comfortable (at Nevada). They've got a great program with Coach (Chris) Ault. I liked the campus. They're just really fired up about me. They were hootin' and hollering when I was on the phone."
Verbal commitments are not binding. Student-athletes can sign Letters of Intent beginning Feb. 1.
