Scout TV: 2015 OT Grant Newsome

VIDEO: 2015 Michigan OT commitment Grant Newsome in action in Thursday's loss.

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. -- It was a tough finish for 2015 Michigan offensive tackle Grant Newsome and his Lawrenceville (N.J.) Prep squad Thursday night.

The evening ended with a 35-28 road loss on a last second score for Episcopal (Pa.) Catholic.

At left tackle for Lawrenceville, Newsome was strong in pass pro and effective not only at the point of attack in the running game, but also getting to the second level to punish oncoming linebackers and defensive backs.

Late in the game, it appeared playing both ways may have caught up to Newsome, wearing down a bit and even allowing end rushers to come free on a couple of occasions to get shots on his quarterback.

Either way, Newsome looks similar to Michael Schofield. Newsome is a very athletic tackle with room to add significant lower body strength once he arrives on a college campus.

Here’s video of Newsome in action last night, No. 72 at left tackle:
