Oakland Park (Fla.) Northeast linebacker Demetri Stewart has laid low this summer and not attended any camps thus far. Though this past weekend Stewart attended his first camp and will attend another this upcoming weekend.
“I went to camp at Georgia this weekend,” Stewart said. “I thought that I did pretty well. I thought that I really did well in the one on ones. Some of the guys had a tough time with me. I won the shuttle and that was pretty cool. I mainly went up there for the competition and got a lot of it.”
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Stewart is rated as the nation’s No. 46 regardless of position by Rivals.com and is rated as the nation’s No. 4 outside linebacker.
“I liked Georgia a lot, it was a cool place,” Stewart said. “I liked the setup and the school. The school was huge though, you had to walk a long way to get from one place to the next there. That was about the only thing that I didn’t like about it. It had a real nice small town feel to it.”
As a junior Stewart racked up 65 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and recovered five fumbles. He also earned all-area honors.
“I would say that right now my top six schools are Miami, Notre Dame, LSU, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Georgia,” Stewart said. “Miami is No. 1 on my list right now. It is just a very good situation for me. The coaches told me that they will only have four scholarship linebackers after this year.”
Stewart attended the NIKE camp in Miami in early April, where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds, did 18 reps on the bench press, ran a 4.56 second shuttle and had a 27-inch vertical jump.
“This weekend I am going to camp at Auburn,” Stewart said. “My coach is driving us up there for that one and then I think that I am through for the summer. We start practice in a couple of weeks and I am going to start focusing on that.”
