Scout.com Take:

Newsome is one of the premiere speed prospects in all of the country. He is also one of the top-rated slot wide receivers and deservedly so. he brings exactly what you want in this style of player. He can line up all over the field and gash defense with big plays and can score any time he gets his hands on the ball. A dangerous return man, which is an understatement, because he is the No. 1 guy in Texas High School Football in punt return TDs.
