No. 3 Texas A&M Football Target: DL Shemar Stewart

I’ve already written quite a few posts about Shemar Stewart, one of the top overall prospects in the 2022 class. The defensive lineman out of Opa Locka, Florida is as college-ready as players get physically, coming in at 6’5″ and 265 pounds.

And he could be the perfect fit for a team that will be losing DeMarvin Leal, who often slid out to the edge, and could be losing a permanent edge rusher in Tyree Johnson. The Aggies will also be losing a key edge rusher in Micheal Clemons, who has seemingly been in College Station for a decade.

I make mention of this every time I talk about Shemar Stewart — the Aggie football prospect was mistaken for a senior in college as a freshman in high school. He’s an absolute beast.

Stewart may be drawn to Aggieland to jump on a big opportunity to get immediate playing time. While the defensive line can be a tough place to find snaps, the departure of the aforementioned Aggie veterans would open the door for Stewart to play significant snaps during his freshman year.

The Aggie prospect recorded 13 sacks in 2021 and it felt like somewhat of a disappointing year for him — that’s how good he can be.

Even though they play similar positions, it seems unlikely that Stewart would be at all deterred by the commitment of the top overall prospect in the class in Walter Nolen. If anything, he’ll want to join up and create the most menacing defensive line in college football.
