Stewart — a 6-foot-9 prospect from Rochester, N.Y. — is the No. 5 overall player in the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He took an official visit to Kentucky this past weekend and visited Washington the week before.
The other schools on Stewart’s list are Duke, Indiana, Michigan State, Syracuse and Villanova. Going into the UK visit, Duke and Michigan State were widely seen as the Cats’ top competition. He does not yet have any other official visits scheduled.
Daniels interviewed Stewart about his UK visit and the status of his recruitment earlier Monday.
247Sports national analysts Jerry Meyer and Brian Snow, among others, still had Stewart pegged to Kentucky as of Monday night.
