The Clemson defense will get a major boost in talent this summer when Tony Steward arrives on campus. In just over a month the nation’s top linebacker will enroll.
“I will be there on July 4,” said Steward.
Tony has been working on conditioning and rehabbing a knee injury.
“They have been coming along pretty good. Things have been kind of slow because I am still rehabbing,” said Steward.
The Florida standout says he expects to be ready to compete when camp starts in August.
“It is going good. I am still on schedule to be healed in time for the summer workouts. I am pretty sure I should be ready to go in August,” said Steward.
What is Tony doing to rehab right now?
“I have been doing some running, about ten minutes at a time. I am trying to condition it,” replied Steward.
Tony will be rooming with another 5-star linebacker at Clemson.
“I am going to be rooming with Stephone Anthony,” said Steward.
The prize recruit has been keeping in touch with his future coaches and teammates.
“I talk with the coaches as much as I can. I talk to Cortez Davis a good bit,” said Steward.
What are the coaches telling the All-American?
“They are just telling me to finish school strong. They tell me to keep up the therapy and don’t try to rush things,” replied Steward.
Tony can’t wait to get to Clemson and join his teammates.
“I am excited to get there. I am sure the homesick part will kick in at some point, but I am ready to get up there and get started,” said Steward.
