Kansas football picked up its fourth commitment from its weekend slate of official visits, the most recent being Class of 2024 running back Harry Stewart.

Harry Stewart, the No. 580 player in his class according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings, committed to the Kansas Jayhawks yesterday. He had been connected to KU for quite some time, and running backs coach Jonathan Wallace added yet another vital piece to his room.

Stewart is a 5-foot-10, 205-pound power back with tremendous strength for an incoming senior in high school. Although he appeared in just six of his team’s ten contests, Stewart averaged nearly 100 rushing yards per game.

National scouting analyst Gabe Brooks wrote that: “[Stewart] typically hits the hole with purpose and makes good use of size. Above average run finisher with corresponding strength accompanied by consistent slipperiness. Regularly breaks arm tackles and shows above average contact balance. Fairly light on his feet and displays enough wiggle to make the first defender miss in space.”

Red Martel, a fellow 3-star running back, is also part of KU’s 2024 recruiting class. Stewart’s prospect grade is 0.8811, while Martel’s is 0.8700.

Stewart held offers from Baylor, Mizzou, Michigan, Texas A&M, and nearly a dozen others. If he does not decommit, the Jayhawks could have a potential successor to star running back Devin Neal.

With this commitment, Kansas now has the No. 40-ranked class in the nation, which would stand as the best in over a decade for the program. Considering head coach Lance Leipold landed four players in the past three days, it’s safe to say that recruits are taking note of Kansas football’s progress.
