The Youngstown State University men's basketball team seems to have filled its final scholarship of the 2013-14 season on Thursday.
Kyle Steward, a 6-foot-7, 195-pound senior shrugged off offers from Cleveland State, Missouri-Kansas City and Jacksonville for YSU, according to Steward's Twitter account.
"I Have Committed To Youngstown State University #YSU," the 6-7 small forward from Cass High School in Detroit said.
He has verbally committed, but has not officially signed. Coach Jerry Slocum cannot comment until Steward signs, per NCAA rules.
The versatile forward, from his highlight tape, is dominant around the basket and able to quickly slice through defenses. In addition, he has solid mid-range jumper and doesn't hesitate to shoot the 3.
Steward had a putback buzzer-beater on Feb. 12 as Cass Tech beat Detroit Southeastern, 61-60.
In addition, YSU assistant coach Steve Hall is a Cass Tech graduate.
Steward isn't the only Detroit-area native to sign with YSU. Last week, the Penguins inked Jalon Plummer, a 6-4 guard from Belleville, Mich., located between Ann Arbor and Detroit. He had 29 points and 12 rebounds in the win.
Plummer, against Birmingham Detroit Country Day, was 5 of 7 from 3-point range and had 24 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Birmingham Detroit Country Day.
Plummer averaged 11 points and six rebounds for the Michigan Class A school that won the state title with a 27-1 mark.
In November, YSU signed its third recruit - 5-9 point guard Marcus Keene from San Antonio, Texas.
Keene averaged 25 points per game his senior season for Warren High School.
