Oregon football recruiting: 3-star CB Jihree Stewart commits to Ducks


The Oregon Ducks landed their fifth-verbal commitment in the class of 2015 on Thursday when 3-star cornerback Jihree Stewart gave his pledge to the Ducks.

Stewart joins 4-star all-purpose running back Taj Griffin, 4-star offensive guard Zach Okun, 3-star tight end Jacob Breeland and 3-star offensive guard Shane Lemieux.

Stewart was offered by the Ducks back in March and took an unofficial visit to Oregon earlier in the week before finally pulling the trigger. He announced both his visit and the subsequent commitment via his twitter account.

Stewart is the younger brother of Utah Utes wide receiver Dres Anderson, who made 53 receptions for 1,002 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

The 5’11, 173-pound Stewart is from Corona, California and attends Centennial High School. Stewart is ranked as the country’s 79th-best cornerback prospect, the the 110th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015 and the 1,016th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

The Ducks’s class now ranks as the sixth-best class in the Pac-12 and the 46th-best overall class in the country.

Stewart chose the Ducks over offers from the Arizona State Sun Devils, Boise State Broncos, Duke Blue Devils, Washington Huskies and Wisconsin Badgers, among others.
