Missouri class of 2012 LB/RB prospect Donavin Newsom 6'2" 220lb is among my top 5 prospects early for his class in the state. The talented athlete has received his first offer from Missouri and has the chance to rise in the rankings over the spring and summer.
ShowMeMizzou.com brings you this exclusive junior highlights of Newsom's junior season from 2010. In them you will see his big play ability as he scores TDs on a kick off return, running the ball from tailback, catching the ball and on defense on an INT return.
I have watched Donavin Newsom play since his freshman season. He displayed above average athleticism and ability for the game back then. He has continued to progress both as a player and athlete over the following two seasons and has become an elite athlete and football player. He has great speed and quickness which he uses to cover sideline to sideline from his MLB position, and he also brings a lot of pressure on the blitz and has good cover skills as well. He is physical and plays with a mean streak on the field. He has very good hands and ball skills.
He could probably be a very talented tailback with his size,speed,vision and natural ability to make plays with the ball in his hands.Newsom is the total package on offense as he also catches the ball extremely well and is a physical blocker. I have Donavin Newsom among my top 5 overall prospects in the state of Missouri for the 2012 class.
