The NCAA transfer portal claimed a former five-star recruit on Tuesday evening.

According to multiple reports, Texas A&M wide receiver Evan Stewart will leave the program and head elsewhere. 247Sports national CFB writer Chris Hummer was the first to report the news. As for Stewart, the class of 2022 recruit, leave College Station after two years with the program.

247Sports ranked Stewart as the 6th best recruit in the Class of 2022. The recruiting service listed him as a five-star recruit before he arrived in College Station. At the time, he was the second-rated recruit in the state of Texas. Furthermore, Stewart ranked first among wide receivers that season in a class that consisted of Luther Burden III and his now-former teammate Chris Marshall.

Stewart finished his career with the Aggies with 91 receptions for 1,163 yards and six touchdowns.

A long-rumored potential portal entry, Stewart commented on social media last week, revealing that he “didn’t get paid a dollar” despite the assumption that the players in that class were well compensated for their commitments. Stewart was a part of a star-studded recruiting class under former head coach Jimbo Fisher last year; there was an assumption that many of those players were getting lucrative NIL deals that would pay them millions of dollars.

“I saw it coming freshman year when I didn’t get paid a dollar from A&M, but ‘sliced bread’ had y’all thinking we was all millionaires,” Stewart posted in a comment on Instagram, according to On3.

In 2022, Stewart had several suitors coming out of Liberty High School (Frisco, TX); he is expected to have plenty again now that he has officially entered the portal.
