We’ve got a late-night YAHTZEE!
According to KSR’s Matt Jones, Kentucky Football has secured a commitment from three-star cornerback Andre Stewart out of Brookwood High School in Snellville, GA.
Stewart was previously committed to the Auburn Tigers but backed out of that decision on Jan. 8. Since then, he’s hauled in offers from the likes of Oregon, Louisville, Michigan State, Miami (FL), Mississippi State, Tennessee, and South Carolina before deciding to choose the ‘Cats on Friday night.

Stewart is graded by both 247 Sports and Rivals as a three-star prospect in his class. 247 Sports ranks him as the 37th best cornerback in the nation while Rivals slots him at No. 56. Kentucky was the first Power 5 offer for Stewart, which he received all the way back in Jan. 2018. He originally left Auburn following a major change-up in staffing at the conclusion of the 2020 season but remained in close contact with the new coaches. Despite that and over a dozen new scholarship offers since the start of the new year, Stewart lands in Lexington.
Joining four-star cornerback Jeremiah Caldwell, Stewart is now the second commitment for Kentucky from the class of 2022. He made his announcement official via Twitter.
