The Georgia state single-season home run record holder, Christin Stewart will provide the Vols with a versatile option as he can play either of the corner positions in the outfield, first base or even behind the plate, with a recorded pop time as low as 1.94. The Lawrenceville, Ga., native hit 26 longballs for Providence Christian Academy last season, breaking the state record previously held by current Arizona Diamondback and Gainesville, Ga., product Micah Owings. In addition to his stellar power numbers, Stewart also hit .500, stole 13 bases and scored 65 runs while leading Providence Christian to the state championship series. He is currently ranked as the nation's 313th-best prospect and received a 9.0 rating from Perfect Game. The organization tabbed him to its Underclass Third-Team All-American Team as well.
Christin Stewart on signing with Tennessee: "Tennessee was just a good fit for me. I fell in love with the school on my visit. I loved the coaching staff and the academic support for the baseball program. I'm thinking about majoring in pre-med and the fact that there is a med school right by campus was a big plus for me. The coaches are all great and very easy to talk to."
Tennessee Head Coach Dave Serrano: "Christin is a big-time left-handed bat with huge power potential. He has put up record home run numbers in state of Georgia and is a versatile athlete that can fill many spots on the field."
