Newsom Is Still Looking For A Home

Even though he was one of the top tacklers in the California JUCO ranks the past couple of years, Feather River LB Kyle Newsom (6-2, 220) is still looking for a place to play in 2014. caught up with the talented prospect recently and he updated us on where things currently stand...

"I had an offer from New Mexico, but things sorta fell through on that offer so I'm still looking for an offer from (an FBS) program," Newsom told "My head coach left and so did our recruiting coordinator, so I really don't have much in the way of options right now.

"I do have some D-2s that like me, but I am hoping to be able to find a place at a bigger school because I think I can play at the highest level."

The past two years for Newsom have seen him lead the Golden Eagles with 78 tackles and 14.5 tackles-for-loss as a freshman (he also posted an interception and a sack) and earned First Team All-Conference and All-Region honors.

In 2013, Newsom again led the team with 94 tackles and 16 tackles-for-loss while also posting a team-leading eight sacks and three fumble recoveries.

"I played mainly outside linebacker, but I can play inside or outside," Newsom said. "I have good instincts and I'm quick to the ball. I play physical too. That's what coaches have liked about me."

Newsom prepped at Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood, Washington and headed to Feather River to get his academics in order and prepare himself to play at the next level.

"I know I can play at the next level and I hope I can find somewhere to play this fall," Newsom said. "I'm just looking for someone to give me a chance."

Newsom still has three years to play two wherever he winds up.
