Stewart, in particular, visited Florida for the second time in two months for Friday Night Lights camp on July 30, alongside his good friend Gators commit and the nation’s No.65 player as a quarterback. back.

In a post-camp interview with AllGators, Stewart said he was shaping his game after a Minnesota wide receiver mix Justin jefferson, Buffalo Receiver Stefon Diggs, and Cleveland receiver Odell beckham jrskills and techniques. SIAA staff compared Stewart’s play to Diggs’ play throughout the event.
