I was sold on Stuart for sure once I saw him throw a perfect ball nearly 55 yards in the air—off his back foot—from the right hash mark to a well-covered receiver on a go route down the left hash.
So Where Has Brandon Stuart Been Hiding?
Under the direction of head football coach the Class C2 Bayard Tigers made it to the state playoffs in 2010 for the first time since 1993. Also, thanks in large part to Stuart’s arm and some pretty good receivers too, I might add. And I’m sure Stuart would shout kudos to his big linemen.
So you see, it’s easy for a high school prospect to get lost in the shuffle— or easily overlooked—when playing for a non-traditional powerhouse Class C school, located in a very small town way out in western Nebraska.
Yet despite the disadvantages, the media and coaches could not overlook Stuart’s on-the-field play, He was awarded Regional Player of the Year, Conference MVP honors and selected Class C2 First Team All-State by the Lincoln Journal Star.
What’s Next for Brandon?
Hopefully, some D-1 schools will soon start taking a good long look at Brandon Stuart, because this young lad is certainly worthy of some big boy college attention.
Stuart is a solid lock to be included in MHN’s Class of 2012 Preseason Top 25 Nebraska High School Football Prospects ranking to be released sometime in early July, after the NCAA Evaluation Period and college summer camp visits are finished. How high he will initially be listed depends a lot on what happens on the recruiting trail between now and then.
