The latest elite talent to officially surface on Shaka Smart’s radar is Rochester (N.Y.) Mc Quaid Jesuit power forward Isaiah Stewart, who picked up a Texas offer on Monday, per multiple reports.
One of the top 2019 prospects in the nation, Stewart currently holds 23 offers with his lengthy list of invitations including Georgetown, Xavier, Florida State, Florida, Marquette, Memphis, Oklahoma State and Tennessee, among others. Duke is beginning to get involved, as well, so the Longhorns will face no shortage of competition for the New York native’s services if the staff elects to make a strong push.
Stewart joins five-star Tennessee talent James Wiseman, the nation’s No. 3 recruit, as the only 2019 power forward prospects to pick up offers from the Longhorns.
At 6’8, 243 pounds, Stewart ranks as the nation’s No. 35 player, No. 9 power forward and the No. 3 player in New York, per 247Sports Composite.
