According to J.D. PicKell of On3, Evan Stewart, the former Texas A&M wide receiver, is anticipated to make a move to join the Tennessee Volunteers. Tennessee has been actively strengthening their roster during this transfer period, securing talents such as Chris Brazzell from Tulane and Holden Staes from Notre Dame. Despite these additions, their focus remains on securing Stewart, who boasts an impressive record with 38 receptions, 514 yards, and four touchdowns in 2023. Stewart, standing at 6 feet tall and weighing 175 pounds, was a highly-rated prospect in the 2022 class and is currently the most sought-after uncommitted player in the transfer portal.

Renowned for his exceptional hands, top-tier speed, and physicality despite his typical slot wideout size, Stewart is poised to make a significant impact wherever he lands. The prediction by J.D. PicKell pointing to Tennessee as Stewart’s potential destination adds weight to the belief that the Volunteers are in a strong position to secure his commitment. Although several schools, including Tennessee, Ole Miss, Florida State, USC, and Oregon, have been listed as potential options, reports from On3’s Pete Nakos dispel notions of Texas and Alabama being viable choices for Stewart.

Tennessee faced challenges in their wide receiver department due to injuries throughout the previous season, with players like Bru McCoy and Dont’e Thornton sidelined. Chas Nimrod stepped up significantly, particularly following Ramel Keyton’s departure, and is expected to continue playing a pivotal role for the Volunteers.
