The Missouri Tigers pulled in several strong talents yesterday, the primary one receiving the attention being the best wide receiver talent to come along in a while in Dorial Green-Beckham. So while others were also worthy of receiving the spotlight — such as the 26th ranked safety in the country like Ka’Ra Stewart — even he had to admit being a part of DGB’s class was something meaningful.
“It’s definitely special,” said Stewart, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound senior who was a strong two-way player for the Panthers last fall. “I saw a few of his highlights, that was about it —but I like what I saw. It definitely helps knowing there’s a lot of good players in our class.”
From the Bellville News-Democrat, “Stewart had 35 tackles, three sacks, four fumble recoveries and two interceptions as a Belleville News-Democrat All-Area linebacker last fall. He had two kickoff returns for touchdowns and also returned a fumble for another score, getting enough time on offense to average nearly 10.5 yards per carry (428 yards and five TDs).”
Stewart teams with Chaston Cuffee and John Gibson to give the Tigers a lot of youth in the defensive backfield.
