Stewart getting the table ready

A.J. Stewart has some decisions to make. The 6-foot-7, 180-pound forward from Arlington Country Day in Jacksonville, Fla., is sifting through offers and interest from high-majors. But the biggest concern around his house these days is centered around the kitchen.
The four-star forward is preparing his house for a number of in-home visits and Stewart says he isn't worried about anything that graces his dining room table.
"My mom can cook. I'm not even worried about that. She'll cook it up," Stewart said.
The soul fool is a family favorite. Tubby Smith will have some. So will Bob Huggins. The list goes on, Stewart said.
"The coaches are getting ready to come," he said. "Tubby is coming on Sept. 19. Bob Huggins is coming sometime next month, too. All of these coaches want to come to see me."
The realization that the coaches will physically be at his dinner table is still a tad bit surreal, he aid.
"I don't even know how it's going to be. Tubby Smith is coming to my house," Stewart said. "I've seen a lot of him but he'll be in my house and I'll be asking him questions. That's pretty cool.
Illinois, Clemson, the Florida schools and a host of others are also trying to see the menu, too. Stewart said he will be meeting with his high school coach Rex Morgan this week to further discuss the schools on his list.
"The plan is making a commitment before my senior year. I want to do that so I can just play," Stewart said.
There haven't been any official visits set up quite yet but Stewart said he'd like to visit Kentucky, Kansas State, Illinois and Clemson.
