MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tigers football team has secured a commitment from one of the top prop players in Tennessee.
James Stewart, a defensive end from Brentwood Academy in Nashville announced Monday he’s committing to Memphis.
He’s been rated 67th in the nation at defensive end. At 6′1″, 244-lbs, Stewart is listed as a 3-Star recruit.
He picks the Tigers over Kentucky of the SEC. Stewart said Memphis’ recent success, including last season’s 12-2 run to the Cotton Bowl, helped sway his decision.
