Isaiah Stewart talks his recruitment, UK interest, and decision plans

The top-5 big man sat down to discuss his recruitment and talks about the Wildcats

Isaiah Stewart is one of the most talented big men in the country. Rated as the 5th overall prospect in the class of 2019, Stewart is down to a final list of Michigan State, Duke, Kentucky, Syracuse, Washington, and Indiana.

Stewart recently sat down with Corey Evans of Rivals for a Q&A session in which you can read the entire interview here.

In the interview, Stewart talked about his recruitment and when he plans to commit and sign to a school. He also admitted that he would not be signing this week and that his commitment and signing will be a later one.

Stewart was asked about his visit to Kentucky and what it was like:

“It was good. That visit, Kentucky came in pretty late, but I got the chance to go down there and see how they do things and see what they are all about.”

And was then asked what Kentucky is all about, in his opinion:

“It is sort of like a powerhouse, with all of the players that went there in the past and how they have gotten guys to the league. I feel like it is a place that usually, whenever you talk about Kentucky and you are a highly ranked player, it is something that you just have to look at.”

Stewart also talked about the possibility of schools recruiting both him and UK target Vernon Carey, and the potential to play together:

“I know some schools have spoken on it, but I am not sure what he is doing with his recruitment. I heard he could be close to committing, so it will be interesting to see what school he picks. I feel like whatever school he picks, if they are recruiting me, they are probably still going to recruit me even if they do get him.”

With no Isaiah Stewart decision coming this week, that leaves a plethora of big men still uncommitted for the 2019 class. Michigan State has been seen as the favorite for quite a bit, with the Spartans getting over half of his predictions, but Kentucky is right behind them with 33% of the predictions. With no decision date set in stone for Stewart, or any uncommitted big man at this point int time, it’s just a waiting game for Kentucky Wildcats fans.
