The Texas A&M Aggies appear set at quarterback for the near future with the meteoric rise of Johnny Football, but still added two good quarterback prospects in the 2013 class, including Houston (Texas) St. Pius X signal-caller Kohl Stewart.
A consensus four-star prospect, Stewart is considered one of the top-15 pro-style quarterbacks in the entire country and one of the top-25 players in the state of Texas. He held offers from LSU, Notre Dame, and Ole Miss before he committed, but certainly would have held many more had he not given his pledge to A&M during the summer prior to his junior season.
Here's the evaluation of Stewart from the 2012 Fox Sports Southwest Texas 7-on-7 State Championship:
A Texas A&M commit and star baseball player who can top out in the mid-90s with his fastball, Stewart looked like the best quarterback in the Division II pool with his command of the offense and his ability to quickly and decisively go from his first to his second read and beyond, even with the pressure of the four-second clock hanging over his head.
In fact, Stewart rarely took sacks and when he did deliver the football, his accuracy was mostly unwavering and his ability to change speeds excellent. With the arm strength that he uses on the baseball field translating to his efforts with the pigskin, Stewart could make any throw on the field, spinning the football with a tight spiral that made the ball jump out of his hand in person as it does on film.
As mentioned, Stewart is also a baseball prospect who has a fastball that could attract significant attention from major league teams when the draft comes around this summer. However, Stewart told SB Nation Recruiting last summer that he'll be playing his baseball in College Station:
I think that I'm going to look pretty good in maroon and white playing in Bluebell Park -- that's all I gotta say.
Recruitment timeline: Stewart is an A&M legacy who committed to Texas A&M in July of 2011, prior to his junior season, and remained firm throughout the process.
