The offers keep coming for Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy EDGE Dylan Stewart, and they’re not stopping any time soon. On Friday, North Carolina became the latest program to enter the recruitment of one of the country’s best sophomores — regardless of position.
Stewart is the No. 42 overall prospect in the 2024 class, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He ranks as the nation’s No. 4 EDGE and the No. 1 sophomore in the District of Columbia.
On3 is significantly higher on him than the other major recruiting services though, according to the Industry Comparison. In the most recent On300 rankings, he was tabbed as the country’s No. 5 overall prospect and top-ranked EDGE.
The Tar Heels join a very long list of schools already after the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Stewart. He already has better than 20 offers to his name, including national powers like USC, Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.
He’s yet to see any of those schools in-person thus far, but he has made trips to Rutgers, Washington and South Carolina since January. And more visits are expected this summer as he heads into his junior season.
“I honestly haven’t even started with all the recruiting stuff,” Stewart told On3’s Chad Simmons in March. “I have taken three visits, I have just really started talking with coaches, and everything is still new to me.”
Dylan Stewart Scouting Summary
“Disruptive pass rusher who looks to be one of the top EDGE prospects early on in the 2024 cycle. Shows a quick first step. Fires off the ball with the ability to quickly redirect with lateral agility. Dips and bends around the edge, showing some encouraging flexibility and curvilinear movement. Also plays low and gets underneath the pads of opposing offensive linemen. Has good size and stature checking in at 6-foot-4.5, 211 pounds with a 81-inch wing-span prior to his junior season. Will need to continue progressing from a strength and technical perspective as he continues through his high school career.” — Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings
