Head coach Jimbo Fisher is building something special in College Station. His 2022 class is shaping up to be one of the best ever assembled at Texas A&M, and his vision only becomes clearer with every five-star athlete he gets to commit to his program.
The latest? Oh, just the No. 1 wide receiver in the Class of 2022, Evan Stewart. Let's meet the future Aggie that has big-time first-round NFL Draft potential.
5-Star WR Evan Stewart Commits to Texas A&M
— ???? ??????? (@0fficial_evan) November 30, 2021
Five-star wide receiver Evan Stewart has blossomed into a prep star while playing for Liberty High School in Frisco, Texas, which is just north of Dallas. He's rated the No. 1 wide receiver, No. 1 player in the state of Texas and No. 3 overall player in his class, per 247Sports.
He held offers from programs like Alabama, Florida, Texas (he visited both the Gators and Longhorns), Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee and USC before deciding to stay near home.
Stewart officially announced his commitment to the Texas A&M Aggies on Monday night, November 29, 2021. In a tweet along with a picture, all he wrote was, "Howdy." It looks like he knows the lingo in College Station.
The 6-foot wideout joins a star-studded 2022 recruiting class for Texas A&M. As of writing, Jimbo Fisher has pledges from fellow five-star athletes defensive lineman Walter Nolen and quarterback Conner Weigman, as well as four-star wide receiver Chris Marshall. Fisher's class is currently the No. 3 class in the nation behind only college football programs Alabama and Georgia.
Now that is how you compete in the SEC.
Evan Stewart Highlights
So, just how good can Evan Stewart be once he's donning an Aggie uniform?
Well, he's got a decent frame that could use some more filling out -- he weighs 175 pounds right now. He already has the necessary speed and athleticism to play in the SEC, too. As a track and field athlete, he won the Texas 5A long jump title in May 2021 while running in his team's gold medal-winning 4x400 relay race.
Pair that with the fact that 247Sports said he had a "hyper-athletic build," called him one of the "most dynamic athletes in his cycle" and mentioned his "elite natural receiver skills" and you can see why Aggie fans should be thrilled about this commitment.
As a junior at Liberty last season, he hauled in 44 receptions for 906 yards and eight touchdowns. In just three games this year, he's amassed 487 yards and three touchdowns in three games, according to MaxPreps.
Evan Stewart has a massive future ahead of him. The outlook for Texas A&M football doesn't look too bad, either.
