Clemson played host to a plethora of talented prospects last Saturday for junior day, including four-star cornerback Reddy Steward.
It marked the first visit to campus for the 2019 recruit from Austin High School in Decatur, Ala.
“My family and I had a great time and we enjoyed ourselves,” Steward told The Clemson Insider.
Several aspects of the experience stuck out to Steward in particular.
“The facilities, the friendliness of the staff, and the opportunities they provide,” he said.
The junior day visitors had the opportunity to take in Clemson’s spring practice.
The physical 5-foot-11, 160-pound Steward liked the physicality and pace the Tigers practiced with.
“It was physical and fast,” he said. “I can tell they have a good team this year.”
Steward had been communicating with Clemson cornerbacks Mike Reed for about a week leading up to the junior day.
Reed met with Steward in person during the visit, expressing that the Tigers are interested and have their eyes on him.
“They are evaluating me and I’m on their radar,” Steward said.
Steward carries power conference offers from Michigan, Mississippi State and South Carolina. Auburn and Florida are showing interest along with Clemson.
Should an offer from Clemson come Steward’s way, it would be significant for the Alabama standout.
“It would mean a lot coming from a school like Clemson,” Steward said, “because they are a top notch program that competes for championships every year.”
Steward has also recently visited Florida, Mississippi State and Auburn.
As a junior in 2017, Steward registered 75 tackles from his cornerback position.
