Philly Safety Talks Fourth Visit to Maryland

Maryland had a handful of visitors for Saturday’s season-opening win over Buffalo and could have some good news on the way from one target. But another out-of-state visitor made his way to campus as Imhotep (PA) three-star safety Rahmir Stewart took his fourth visit to Maryland.

“They came out with the win so it was nice,” he told Inside the Black and Gold. “DBs did good. I saw them rotate in, so that was good.” Running backs coach Elijah Brooks has developed a strong relationship with Stewart dating back to his freshman year and now, safeties coach Wes Neighbors is chipping in.

“I talked with coach Wes [Neighbors]. We text a lot. Just catching up and building the relationship with each other.” Stewart added he’ll look to visit Texas A&M and Rutgers for games this fall before adding he has a desire to take official visits ahead of a decision. Maryland, though, is now the mix for the Philly star.

“It’s close. They check up on me when I get there, nice color jerseys and good DBs.”

Stewart added that Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Jackson State are also staying in contact. He initially planned on making a late summer commitment but has held off, and with a desire to take officials, Stewart doesn’t have firm plans to take the next steps in his recruitment. “I might wait it out, maybe end of September or early October.”

The Aggies had all the momentum through the summer but now, Stewart has slightly hit the pause button. While he finalized plans for official visits, Stewart added that Maryland “probably will” get an official visit.

“That’s probably something I’m going to do.”

Stewart is rated a three-star prospect and an 86 overall by On3, sitting as the 23rd-best prospect in Pennsylvania.
