Just letting yall know I chose to sign with a team in the states to jump start my career. This team has made me feel nothing but love from the start. They have made me the face of their program and I havent reported yet. Thats love, im excited to be coming back to Oklahoma and play! I chose this route because I didnt wanna be to far away from my kids wayyy in Canada and if I ball I have the same opportunities if not more here rather than over seas. Maybe im typing to much but im just excited and even more excited that my first home game a NFL team will be watching me. Can you guess what team? Anyways sorry for the long message I just wanted to let you guys know that its official and im gonna be balling again. All my lil bros in Oklahoma if you need tickets HMU and we will make it happen. Oklahoma State fans, im coming back home!!🤟🏾❤🙏🏽
Stewart left OSU early in hopes of being drafted, but went undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. Eventually he signed as a free agent with the Tennessee Titans, but he was waived early in his tenure after suffering an Achilles injury.
At OSU, Stewart amassed 2,204 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns in three seasons spanning from 2011-2013. For fun, here’s a look back at his time at OSU.
