Recruiting 1on1: Wisconsin in Top 2 for 2014 QB Chance Stewart


We’re constantly attempting to give you unique, fun, and interesting coverage here at MTB and with it being summer the recruiting world is heating up like no other and we’re stepping up our game on that front as well. With that we were able to hook up with one of the first huge offers in the 2014 class, Quarterback Chance Stewart, who has been picking up interest from around the Big Ten.

2014 QB Recruit Chance Stewart

Stewart is a QB from Sturgis, MI and he fits the mold of a typical drop back passer and Pro-Style QB as he stands 6’5″ and is about 210 right now. So Wisconsin’s interest should be easy to see.

He received his first offer from a BCS school from Wisconsin after camping at the school in mid-June. “It was a great weekend, I got to spend the hole weekend with my dad,” said Stewart in our exclusive first interview with him. “Then on fathers day I earned my 1st BCS offer. So it was a very fun weekend.”

After camping at Wisconsin he came away impressed by both Offensive Coordinator Matt Canada and Coach Bielema and is also anxious to see what the facilities look like after construction is done.

Wisconsin is not the only Big Ten school after his services and Stewart has camped this summer at Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State. He’s also been to Notre Dame for their camp as well. Currently Wisconsin and Western Michigan are the only known offers out there for Stewart. 

When asked about where Wisconsin fits in to his recruitment Stewart stated, “I really like Wisconsin, and Michigan. I’d say those two schools are on the top of my list.”

Currently Eddie Faulkner is the main recruiter for Wisconsin and he’s proven to be able to land the big fish after getting a huge commitment from Darius Latham in the 2013 class earlier this week. 

It’s safe to say Stewart is enjoying his recruitment process overall, but there’s been a downside as well, “The hardest part is probably waiting for that phone call,” said Stewart. “[The] majority of the coaches said we’d be in contact in the future after camp. So that’s the hardest part.”

As for making a decision on a school Stewart says “Well, I’m more of a pro-style QB so that’s something that’d be nice [a pro-style offense]. And as a time frame- Id like to make a decision by the end of my junior year.”

He could be a key piece to Wisconsin’s 2014 class and his offer sheet should become numerous over the next few months, but the Badgers are clearly making an impression on him and he’s one to watch over his Junior season as the QB inches closer to a decision.
