"Definitely really excited to get the offer!" Newell exclaimed via text. "They don't just offer any player either so that means a lot to me. Hopefully will get chance to talk with the coaching staff sometime this spring!"
Newell has been invited to OU's second Junior Day March 9, but is still unsure on whether or not he'll attend.
In all, Newell now possesses 23 BCS offers.
But at his 6-foot-3, 280-pound frame, Newell could grow into an interior defensive lineman, and OU has offered three others of those to this point, including Khairi Clark, Tashon Smallwood and Zaycoven Henderson.
That means there are currently seven defensive line offers for the 2014 class, all seven uncommitted.
