Cvaughn Stewart has known the Utah coaching staff for a few years and the Utes were the first to offer last season.
It's really no surprise because Utah has targeted the Fresno (Calif.) Bullard recruit for a while and the 2016 tight end is definitely interested in that program.
"In my freshman year I transferred from Sunnyside and Utah came for one of my teammates," Stewart said. "My coach just wanted to introduce me to college coaches. Utah came that day and they said I'm the type they're looking for if I just put on some more weight. That was my freshman year.

"They said if I add some more weight then I could definitely be a recruit. Last season they came back and this time they came for me. They said my grades are good and as long as I take the ACT I have a scholarship from the University of Utah."
It is a major offer for the three-star tight end who is also hearing plenty from USC, Arizona, Colorado, Penn State, Oregon State and others.
Stewart, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound prospect, said landing his first offer from a power conference like the Pac-12 is definitely a major thing in his recruitment and the Utes will be looked at moving forward.
"It is really big having your first offer from a Pac-12 school," Stewart said. "That's really kind of rare for a sophomore and a Pac-12 school so it's a blessing."
The offer from Utah is something Stewart will definitely consider but it sounds like the Fresno Bullard standout is not rushing his decision.
USC is a school that Stewart likes a lot and if the Trojans offer then things could get even more interesting.
"Right now I really like USC," Stewart said. "If they offered me I'd be very interested but I think I'd still wait it out until my senior year to see where I'd want to go."
