One of Michigan football’s top in-state targets in the 2020 class was in Ann Arbor for a visit this past weekend, and we caught up with him to get the full scoop.
3-star 2020 wide receiver Ian Stewart, a native of Rockwood, visited the University of Michigan last weekend, and he had quite the busy day.
“It was great,” Stewart told Maize n Brew. “ (I) talked with the coaches, went bowling, had a photo shoot (and) went to the stadium. It was very fun.”
When asked which coaches he got to talk to, Stewart admitted he was able to speak with “really all of the coaching staff.”
“I met coach (Josh) Gattis, talked with coach (Roy) Roundtree, coach (Sherrone) Moore and honestly the entire staff who (was) there,” he said. “We talked a little football but we talked more than football, too. It was a good time.”
Gattis has not been in Ann Arbor long, but his impact seems to already have been made on the recruiting trail. Stewart told Maize n Brew shortly after Gattis was hired that it was a “huge pick up,” and he could not wait to meet him.
So, what did he think of the new offensive coordinator?
“He’s cool, seems very determined and focused at the task at hand,” Stewart said.
Up next for Stewart is a trip to Happy Valley to meet with James Franklin and Penn State. He plans on heading down there in a few weeks, which is pretty quick considering he received an offer from Penn State just four days ago.
We will provide an update after his Penn State visit, so stay tuned.
