Despite developing a relationship with the Gopher staff, Newby has recently narrowed his list down to three schools.
"I've really been narrowing down my timeline and I will be committing this week," he said. "[It's] between Cal, Oregon and Nebraska."
With these three top programs, Newby feels like he will be able to make a good decision.
"It's a big choice for me but I believe that they are all great schools."
