Deon Stewart Signs With Arkansas

Wide Receiver. Hardy, Arkansas.

Deon Stewart is probably one of the most overlooked recruits in this class. That is due partly because he committed to Arkansas back in April of 2014.

Stewart held offers from Arkansas, Louisville, Ole Miss and Tulsa. He would have likely had more but he shut down his recruitment so early. His only official visit was to the Razorbacks in December. Barry Lunney Jr. and Michael Smith were his primary recruiters for The Razorbacks.

Stewart adds depth and more stability to a position Arkansas needed help with in this class. He reports running a 4.48 40. He isn't the tallest receiver, coming in at 5' 11", but he is receiver Arkansas could put on the outside and provide some separation from defenders. That's something they haven't had in a couple of years. Stewart could come in and contribute immediately.
