We’ve continued to rave about the potential of the Class of 2020 both regionally and nationally and one reason why is the continued emergence of talented prospects with each passing year.  One such talent is PG DJ Steward of Fenwick High School in Illinois.

A 6-1 160 plus pound long lean wiry lead guard, Steward has slowly progressed into into elite national status potential and the top 50 national guard (i.e. #48 in the most recent NY2LASPORTS.COM Class of 2020 Player Rankings) is only scratching the surface of his potential.  A lanky skilled floor general, Steward handles the ball well, he has nice vision, he’s shown excellent timing and delivery on his passes, and he’s a shot creator at multiple levels that’s both talented and elite in flashes.  Steward uses either hand well, he can finish around and through contact, he can finish at the mid-level with floaters, he can hit the jumper, and his range can extend out beyond the arc on occasion.  Instinctively on the defensive end he’s shown an ability to jump the passing lanes and create positive chaos on multiple levels.  Currently averaging close to 23 ppt, 5 rpg, and 3 apg for Fenwick, Steward is still a developing talent physically and skill wise and he’s only getting better.  Steward can play and he can do so in elite and dominant fashion when locked in and schools are taking notice.  

He holds offers from Illinois, Illinois State, De Paul, Northwestern, UAB, Georgia Tech, etc.  Expect to hear a lot about Steward over the next 12-24 months as he looks and feels the part of an elite national prospect and he’s only trending up.

Steward played with the Meanstreets program during the grassroots travel season.
