Newsome Announces Top 10

Aledo star athlete Ryan Newsome announced his Top 10 list Saturday night and Texas Tech was on it. The four-star 2015 prospect helped the Bearcats claim the Texas Class 4A Division II state title last month.

Aledo four-star athlete Ryan Newsome announced his Top 10 list Saturday night and it included Texas Tech.

The junior also named Baylor, Clemson, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA as schools in the running for his services.

The 5-foot-9 speedster was utilized at receiver, running back, quarterback and in the return game by Aledo in 2013.

Newsome, who has been clocked at 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash, uses his blazing speed and agility to take over games as he did in the Texas Class 4A Division II state championship last month.

Newsome accounted for 119 yards of total offense and scored twice; once on a 28-yard reception and another on an electrifying 59-yard run to help Aledo defeat Brenham 38-10.

Brenham wisely chose not to kick the ball anywhere close to Newsome, who finished one touchdown shy of the national record for the most punt return scores in a single season, with seven.

Newsome told on Saturday he still plans on visiting Texas Tech for the spring game as first reported shortly after coach Kliff Kingsbury offered him in December.

Newsome, whose recruitment by Tech was previously led by former Red Raiders coach Sonny Cumbie, also added that assistant coaches Eric Morris and Kevin Curtis have both been in contact since Cumbie's departure.
