SMU landed commitment number four this afternoon when West Saint Mary (Baldwin, La.) athlete Daijuan Stewart gave the Mustangs a verbal. Read further to learn more about the versatile junior.

SMU wide receivers coach Jeff Reinebold successfully recruited four speedy players from Louisiana in the 2011 class, and he reached into the Bayou State again today to procure a verbal commitment from fleet-footed junior ATH Daijuan Stewart.

Last year, Stewart did a little bit of everything for the Wolfpack, accounting for 1,850 all-purpose yards (786 rushing, 462 receiving, and 345 passing).

"Our coaches put me in situations to help the team," said Stewart. "I moved around to different places. I played quarterback, running back, receiver, and cornerback.

"This (upcoming) season, I'll continue to move around, but I'll probably play more receiver than I did last year. Coach (offensive coordinator) A.J. (Smith) is installing the run and shoot offense, and I'm excited about that."

Stewart committed to SMU today while visiting the campus.

"I like the school and I like the offense," he said. "They're recruiting me for the slot, and I think I'll fit in well at that position for SMU. It's a nice campus and I'm very excited.

"The coaches were surprised and happy when I told them I was committing. I watched the team practice and met a bunch of the guys - players and coaches. I like my chances of coming in and playing early at SMU, and I like Coach Reinebold. He's cool; really cool."

Stewart certainly has ample athletic ability. Last week, he took first place in both the 110 and 300 meter hurdles at the Class 3A regional meet. For those efforts, Stewart was recognized as the region's outstanding track performer. He'll go for the state title next week in Baton Rouge.

Pittsburgh, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette, and McNeese State were among the schools that visited the West Saint Mary campus this spring to recruit Stewart.
