It might have taken longer than expected, but Rodrick Stewart is officially a member of the University of Kansas men's basketball program. The 6-foot-5, 215-pound shooting guard from Seattle, Wash., is scheduled to arrive on the Kansas campus at the beginning of next week. It was clear from day one that Stewart had his heart set on being a Jayhawk after transferring from USC.
"On man, everything is finally done," Bull Stewart, the father of Rodrick Stewart said. "My son will jump on a plane this Monday and be on campus later on in the day. Rodrick is so excited about this move and cannot wait to arrive in Lawrence.
"We sent Rodrick's grades to Kansas and everything has already been cleared," he added. "His decision to attend Kansas is as solid as the victory USC had over Oklahoma on Tuesday night, and we know how solid that was. Rodrick and I just love everything about Kansas. This move is finally official and we really could not be happier. The people in Lawrence are great and our experience with the media has been extremely positive."
Stewart has also been receiving interest from Washington, Washington State and Gonzaga. There was a time when the 6-foot-5 shooting guard had seriously thought about taking a visit to Gonzaga, but after returning from a visit to Kansas, Stewart was ready to make his decision.
However, Stewart's transfer to Kansas would not be complete until the admissions department received his grades/transcript from USC. Now that Stewart has been cleared by the Kansas admissions department, his transfer is now complete. He will arrive in Lawrence on Monday afternoon.
