Recruitment so far
While Newman has been among the top prospects in the 2015 class since his early days of high school, he has actually slow-played his recruitment for the most part. He has yet to take an official visit and has in fact postponed some scheduled trips in the past. Moreover, he has never officially announced his list -- with the aforementioned six schools establishing themselves as the ones definitely in the mix. Newman said recently he was ready to dive into the process soon, in terms of taking official visits and whittling down his list to a couple of schools. This could be one that doesn’t end for several weeks -- especially with a recent coaching change at one of the schools on his list.
