Newton Comments on Columbia

Quarterback Syvelle Newton just returned home from his visit to Columbia and South Carolina. Newton, from Malboro County High School, has one more visit left and then it's decision time.

"I really had a good visit to South Carolina," said Newton. "Lots of things standout about those guys - the coaches, campus and city especially. I am from a small town but I like the bigger city. I love the campus and there is a lot to do there. I think South Carolina is a place where I can play early. We (Demetris Summers, Noah Whiteside, Eric Young, etc.) are all talking about going to the same school. That would be great. Right now, I do not have a leader and I will announce on Signing Day."

Summers, for the moment, has only one more scheduled trip. He will visit Vanderbilt (1-31). Top Stories
