Stuart was later named the 2011 Big West Freshman Pitcher of the Year. UC Riverside's pitching staff compiled a 3.40 ERA during his final season, the lowest ERA in the last 15 years of the program and the lowest ERA for a UCR team at the Division I level.

Prior to his time at UCR, Choate was the pitching coordinator for UC Irvine, who finished fourth at the 2007 College World Series. He served as the Anteaters' director of baseball operations in 2006. Choate pitched collegiately at Cal Poly for two seasons, where he was awarded the "Jim Newkirk Fireman's Award", given to the team's best relief pitcher, in his junior and senior seasons.
