Jarrad Stewart, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound safety out of Pearland High School in Texas, has given the University of Utah an early commitment. The senior plans to sign a national letter of intent with the Utes in February.
Stewart, who will reportedly play linebacker for the Oilers this fall, is the second addition to Utah's 2009 recruiting class joining Jordan High School lineman Vyncent Jones (6-4, 295).
According to rivals.com, Stewart was also recruited by Boise State, Houston, Kentucky, Oklahoma State, Rice, SMU and Texas Tech.
