Stewart headed to Florida

It appears that Xavier linebacker Graham Stewart will sign a national letter of intent sometime next week to play at Florida, according to Xavier coach Sean Marinan.

Stewart originally made a oral commitment to play at Boston College.

On Stewart's decision, Marinan said "(Stewart) pretty much made (it)."

Said Marinan: "They (Florida) Fed-Ex'ed a letter of intent up here, but, for some reason, he (Stewart) couldn't pick it up today so he'll pick it up on Saturday. It's been a dream of his to play down there."

Stewart will play in the Team USA vs. The World game on Wednesday, which is national signing day. Marinan said Stewart will probably sign his letter of intent next Friday.
