Aledo wide receiver Ryan Newsome
"He came out of the RV with the Ray Bans on and he was looking swagged up."
The 5-foot-9 star was one of the reasons Aledo became the first-ever high school to amass 1,000 points in a season. In addition to the historic feat, Aledo won the Texas Class 4A Division II state championship.
Newsome said he enjoyed meeting with Kingsbury on Wednesday.
"It went well," Newsome said. "He told me he was a big fan of mine and a top target for Texas Tech as far as slot receiver goes."
Any follower of Texas Tech understands the importance of the slot receiver position to the Air Raid offense. It's the position that helped Texas Tech become known as "Wide Receiver U" with former players including Danny Amendola and Eric Morris. Let's not forget the man who started it all in Mike Leach's system, Wes Welker, who will be playing in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Newsome stated Kingsbury talked to him about the offense and how they hope he comes out to Lubbock soon. Newsome said recently he plans on visiting Tech during its spring game.
Kingsbury is the youngest head coach in the power five conferences, but what may seem like a disadvantage is turning out to be a big advantage when it comes to recruiting.
"As a player, you always want a coach or a guy you can relate to and he's one of those guys," Newsome said. "So that's why me and him have established a good relationship with each other."
The four-star rated prospect with 4.41 speed already holds offers from Tech, Baylor, Clemson, Oklahoma, Oregon State, TCU, Texas Tech and UCLA. He recently named the Red Raiders as one of his 10 top schools.
