“King 5 News claimed tonight that Stewart will be making his decision this Friday exclusively on King 5.
Ha Ha UW. At least you have Bonnell, WSU’s sloppy seconds.”
That’s right, the suspense will end and the announcement will be Friday. OF COURSE I hope he’s coming to Pullman, but sadly, I think he’ll throw on a green-n-gold O hat and say that the lord pointed his finger to Eugene. Also, a site that is not credible in any way, run by someone named Ruth Robbins, who happened to get fired by Dawgman.com over a year ago for fraudulent stories, is claiming that her “sources” say he is going to Oregon, which will follow with UW landing JR Hasty and EJ Savannah, since Stewart and Hasty basically hate each other. Hey, it’s on the internet, it MUST be true….uh-huh.
There will be a lot speculated on the next couple of days, but you never know. Stranger things have happened. In all seriousness, I’m just glad the whole thing will be over in a couple of days. It will be good for him to get it off his chest and move on with life, and will be good for us to move on too. No matter what, as Lawson says, we have recruited a heck of a lot of good athletes, lots of speed, so we’ll be fine, sans mr. #1 RB. Plus, Jerome Harrison is a 1500-yd back waiting to happen, and the story about Kevin McCall today has to get people fired up for Lightning and Thunder!
ALL that said? I have to admit, it’s going to SUCK donkeys to see Stewart grow into an all-american in Autzen!
One other news item – DL Wilson Holman, an earlier WSU commit, has changed his tune and now has committed to Oregon State. This is the huge middle of the line project out of Moses Lake. Take a look:
Holman, who verbally committed to WSU back in October, took a visit this weekend to Corvallis. Washington State and Holman mutually decided to end their association, doing so in an amicable manner. Holman declined to talk on the record about why he and Washington State parted ways. Holman is currently working to meet NCAA academic admission standards.
There was also rumor of him having some SERIOUS baggage, including a brush with the local authorities, and could be why the mutual decision to split. Some feel he’ll never make it to a 4-year school, but we’ll see if he turns out to be another Leon Bender or not.
