Rating|Rank: | 47
HT: 5-9 | WT: 165
College Interest: TCU (offer), Baylor, Texas, Texas Tech, Cal, Oklahoma

Eyeball test:
At 5-foot-9, 170-pounds, Newsome isn't the biggest prospect on the field, but once the ball is in his hands you quickly realize that despite his size, he's the top player on the field.

Evaluation:
One word perfectly describes Newsome; explosive. If you've ever heard the old cliche of "he can score from anywhere on the field", well, Newsome can. Whether it was a swing pass, jet sweep or punt return, fans from both Aledo and Granbury knew a big play was coming when the junior speedster touched the ball. He didn't disappoint, returning two punts for touchdowns as Aledo routed yet another opponent 72-6. Newsome already has an offer from TCU and is getting strong interest from the likes of Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas Tech. Although he's currently ranked as the #47 receiver for the 2015 class, it won't come as a surprise if Newsome moves up the rankings before long.
