Marvin Stewart's recruitment has progressed very nicely up to to this point. The athlete from Arlington (Va.) Yorktown has offers from Virginia, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Duke, Wake Forest, Northwestern and Old Dominion.
"Everything has been going well," said the 6-foot, 184-pound Stewart. "Recruitment has slowed down a little bit so I'm focusing on training right now."
The Northwestern Wildcats are the latest team to offer Stewart.
"Northwestern offered me in January," he said. "They came to my school and we've been in contact since then. They like how I can play defense or offense and want me to come up for a visit. I might go up there during my spring break."
Stewart is starting attract some big name schools.
"Stanford and Penn State are the two biggest schools that I'm talking to that haven't offered me yet," Stewart said. "They are saying they need to evaluate my film because they haven't finished doing that yet.
"I think Penn State will be the next to offer," he said. "Everybody wants to make it to the championship or a bowl game. The sanctions will be a factor but Penn State is a great school and the program is on the rise. It's something to think about."
Stewart is in the process of planning some visits for the offseason.
"Basically, all of the schools want me to visit," said Stewart. "I didn't get to go to a lot of junior days so they want me to come visit and stay overnight in the dorms with a player. I think I'm going to get down to Duke, North Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech during my spring break at the end of March."
Last season, Stewart amassed 1,842 yards and 35 total touchdowns on offense and seven sacks and 10 interceptions on defense.
