2020 in-state WR Ian Stewart discusses Big House BBQ, where Michigan ranks on his list

Players from all around the country gathered in Ann Arbor last Saturday for the BBQ at the Big House, the biggest recruiting event of the year for the Michigan Wolverines, but one player in particular did not need to travel very far to feel the love from Jim Harbaugh and company.

In-state 2020 wide receiver Ian Stewart, who was offered a scholarship by Michigan in June, was at the event and had raving things to say about the program and the event.

“It was good, I had a great time,” Stewart said. “(My favorite part was) probably the photo shoot, I’d say.”

Photo shoot, eh? You mean THIS photo shoot?!

Stewart did his photo shoot with the players he spent the most time with — 2020 Michigan cornerback commit Andre Seldon Jr., 2020 in-state wide receiver Devell Washington and 2020 in-state receiver Jalen Williams.

Stewart says he also spent a lot of time with 2020 Michigan wide receiver commit Kalil Branham, who also had glowing things to say about the BBQ at the Big House, the school and the football program.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder from Rockwood was also extended a scholarship offer from Michigan State July 31, the same date he visited the school.

This appears to be an in-state battle through and through. There are four crystal ball predictions for Stewart’s landing spot on 247Sports — two to Michigan and two to MSU.

But don’t worry yet, U-M fans, because the BBQ at the Big House solidified Michigan as one of Stewart’s top schools.

“Yeah, (Michigan has) always been high (on my list),” he said.

He also added, “Just (an) excellent environment, atmosphere is always amazing when you go to a prestigious place like Michigan.”

Stewart is unsure of when he will make a final decision, as he is “just taking everything in right now.” Whenever that decision is made, Michigan will be under consideration until the very end.
