The No. 1 safety in Pennsylvania is following Matt Rhule west to Lincoln.
Rahmir Stewart of Imhotep Institute in Philadelphia, a 3-star safety, announced his commitment to Nebraska on Saturday. Stewart was blown away by the coaching staff and facilities during his official visit on Friday.

Stewart was one of Rhule’s first offers since taking the head coaching job at Nebraska. Rhule extended the scholarship offer to Stewart on November 28, the same day Rhule was introduced in Lincoln. The head coach went through Philadelphia at the start of the week while on the recruiting trail. Stewart chose Nebraska over Penn State, Kentucky and Jackson State. He also held scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Oregon, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas, Notre Dame and Oklahoma.
The Philadelphia native was a two-way player in high school, both as a bruising safety and a compact, punishing running back. Scouts complimented his physicality and mentality that help him overcome his size disadvantage (5-foot-11, 195 lbs). He has the physicality to shed blocks and the speed to cover ground.
Stewart is the 17th known commit in Nebraska’s 2023 recruiting class not from the transfer portal. He’s the sixth recruit of that class pursued by the Rhule staff, eighth total when including two acquisitions from the transfer portal. He’s the fourth commit of the weekend following Omaha Westside seniors Tristan Alvano and Jaylen Lloyd and Florida transfer Corey Collier Jr.
