Another recent forward transfer who entered the portal a couple of weeks ago and could be a viable Longhorns target is former Duke Blue Devils freshman power forward Sean Stewart.

The former elite high-four-star recruit from Windemere, FL, and Montverde Academy was one of the highest-rated power forwards out of high school in the 2023 class before he signed with Duke. Stewart played reserve minutes during his true freshman campaign at Duke in 2023-24.

He averaged 8.3 minutes per game and played in 33 games last season, averaging 2.6 points per game, 3.2 rebounds, and 0.2 assists.

The big 6-foot-9 and 230-pound power forward was offered by Terry and the Longhorns as a high school recruit out of Montverde Academy this past cycle.

Stewart played well in the games when he got double-digit minutes off the bench for head coach Jon Scheyer and the Blue Devils. He registered a dozen points, five rebounds, two steals, and three blocks, in 26 minutes on the floor in a big win for Duke late in the regular season against NC State.

He also gave the Blue Devils good minutes off the bench in a Round of 32 win over James Madison in the NCAA Tournament this year, registering five points, seven rebounds, and one steal in 15 minutes.

Stewart played minutes at the four and the five for Duke last season. He has the length and athleticism to play at both positions in the frontcourt, depending on the pieces you put around him.

If Texas added Stewart, he could backup Shedrick and/or Kent in the frontcourt while giving Terry and staff some long-term upside in this part of the rotation.
