Make it a full dozen commitments for OSU in 2020.

The class grew from 11 to 12 on Tuesday when tight end prospect Quinton Stewart, a 6-foot-4 prospect from Salina, Kansas, verbally pledged to OSU over Iowa State, Kansas State and Kansas.

Stewart picked up an offer from OSU in late April, shortly after OSU missed on another long-time tight end target. From there, OSU put on the full-court press by coaxing him into visiting and, finally, committing.

Stewart generated interest as both a tight end and defensive end in recent months, and starred at a regional camp last month. Ultimately OSU, who saw him as a tight end, won out over in-state Kansas State and others who viewed him as a defensive end.

When talking about performances that were completely different than we expected, Kansas native Quinton Stewart deserves comment. We evaluated and rated Stewart as a strongside defensive end, but he came to St. Louis and worked out at tight end, where he put together an outstanding performance. Stewart has the muscled-up frame that often affects agility, but there was no stiffness in his play. He popped easily in and out of his breaks and showed a natural pair of hands. Kansas and Oklahoma State have offered Stewart at tight end, but others, like Kansas State, are still evaluating him as a defensive end. [Rivals]

Stewart is the first tight end in the 2020 class to commit to OSU and likely the only. He is currently unranked by 247Sports but rated by rivals as a three-star recruit and the No. 4 prospect in the state.
