Parker Stewart, a 3-star Class of ‘17 combo guard from Tennessee is apparently feeling the love from the Georgetown coaching staff. Stewart received a release from his letter of intent from Ole Miss due to the uncertain future of head coach Andy Kennedy with the program.

Parker is a very skilled combo guard who could very well be the next great point guard to thrive in Kennedy’s system. He is at his best as a wing or shooting guard much like Marshall Henderson was. But, he is also a very good passer and could project as a point guard like former Rebs Chris Warren and Stefan Moody.
He is serviceable when putting the ball on the floor and driving to the hoop, utilizing his length to beat defenders. However, I think Stewart is better catching and shooting or coming off screens. His overall skill set and basketball IQ make him a very good prospect that should contribute immediately upon arrival in Oxford.
Georgetown’s pursuit of Stewart should come as no surprise, as the Hoyas are desperate for scoring on the wing after missing out on Wright State grad transfer Mark Alstork.
Georgetown assistant coach Robert Kirby has ties to the South, having previously been an assistant at Mississippi State, Memphis and LSU.
