"There's always something to prove, and this is another opportunity to perform to my ability. That's why I come to things like this, just to compete. I wanted to show off my speed and make cuts. It's what we do as football players; it's fun and that's why we're out here. Overall, it was a great day," he said.
"Recruiting has been pretty nice. I think I'm getting closer to narrowing down my schools. I don't want to come up with a top list yet, but I'll definitely do it before the season. I'm either going to make my decision before the season, or after it's finished," he said.
There are a few other programs that the 5'10", 180 lb. Newby has his eye on, as well.
"USC is definitely in the mix now. I went to one of their practices and I felt like I fit in over there. Their lack of running backs right now is pretty bad and I feel like I've got something with Coach Ed Orgeron over there; he's awesome. He said to be patient and not to jump on any other schools, that he wanted to see me at camp," he said.
Newby is also making plans to take a few visits over the next few months.
"I'm definitely going to be going to the USC camp and I think the California camp, too. I'm going on an unofficial to Nebraska on April 14th, and then I'll go to Colorado that same week," he said.
