A few notes on AJ Stewart (Men’s BB transfer)

  • Texas State was one of several schools pursuing the 6-foot-8 forward.
  • The Bobcats, Kent State, Middle Tennessee State and Murray State were all going for Stewart.
  • Stewart’s original choice was Central Florida, but the school pulled out of the running late, leaving him up for grabs to the others.
  • Texas State won out because new assistant coach Rob Flaska recruited Stewart out of high school and knew his old high school coach. Stewart liked what he saw on the official visit and called Bobcat head coach Doug Davalos the next day to accept the offer.
  • Davalos on Stewart: “He’s a shot blocker and inside-out player who has a nice touch and really attacks the basket. He’s an athletic rebounder too, which in our league, he’ll be a very versatile forward for us.”
  • Stewart will sit out a year and be eligible for Texas State in 2010-11.

  1. Huge get for the Bobcats. He was a Top 100 player coming out of high school. Hopefully once he can play, he'll dominate the SLC.
