OVERVIEW

Cam Newton's long road through the collegiate ranks came to an end after he guided the Tigers to the national championship in his only year at the university. Regarded as one of the top prep quarterbacks in the country, he began his college career as an understudy for Tim Tebow at the University of Florida in 2007. He appeared in five games as a true freshman for the Gators, but injuries and off-field issues limited the talented athlete to just one game appearance in 2008 before he was suspended from the team.

Rather than return to the university, Newton transferred to Blinn College in 2009, where he helped the Buccaneers capture the junior college national title. A heavy recruiting war for Newton's services ensued, with the junior eventually enrolling at Auburn for the 2010 campaign.

In early November of 2010, it was reported that during Newton's recruitment out of junior college, former Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers had called his former Bulldogs teammate, John Bond, claiming to represent Newton and asked for payment to secure Newton's commitment to Mississippi State. According to Bond, Rogers said it would take up to $180,000 to secure Cam Newton's signature.

After much speculation, the NCAA released its finding in a statement in early December. The college sports governing body had concluded that a violation of Newton's amateur status had occurred. Auburn declared Newton ineligible on November 30th and requested his eligibility be reinstated. Newton was cleared to compete without conditions a day later.

According to the release, Auburn and the NCAA enforcement staff agreed that Newton's father, Cecil Newton, worked with Rogers to market Newton as part of a play-for-pay scheme. NCAA officials said based on the information available at the time, there wasn't sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or Auburn was aware of the scheme, which led to his reinstatement.

With the controversy behind him, Newton continued on and led Auburn to an undefeated 14-0 record, a Southeastern Conference title and the BCS National Championship. He went on to complete 185 of 280 passes (66.07%) for 2,854 yards, 30 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. He also led the league with 1,473 yards and 20 scores on 264 carries (5.58 ypc), joining Nevada's Colin Kaepernick as the only quarterbacks in college football annals to throw for more than 20 touchdowns and rush for 20 scores in the same season.

Despite having his only season as a starter at the FBS level marred by off-field controversy, Newton turned in one of the greatest campaigns in college football history. After capturing the Heisman Memorial Trophy, the Maxwell Award and the Davey O'Brien Award, the All-American is set to take his talents to the professional level, announcing on Jan. 13, 2011 that he was leaving school and applying for the NFL Draft.

Newton often earns favorable comparisons to former Texas Longhorns signal caller Vince Young for his outstanding ability as a dual-threat quarterback. Newton boasts an extra 20 pounds on his frame that gives him far more strength. Operating out of the hurry-up spread offense, he carries the ball using the zone-read fake as well as out of the wildcat formation, allowing the Tigers to take full advantage of his athleticism and power.

In 2010, Newton shattered Jimmy Siddle's Southeastern Conference record for rushing yards by a quarterback (1,006; 1963) with 1,473 yards. That mark ranks third all-time at Auburn among all ball carriers, and is surpassed only by Bo Jackson (1,786; 1985) and Rudi Johnson (1,567; 2000). He also set a new Auburn season-record with 20 rushing touchdowns, shattering the school's previous mark of 17 by Jackson in 1985 and Carnell Williams in 2003. That number is topped only by Tim Tebow of Florida (23; 2007) on the SEC's single-season record chart.

Most scouts feel that Newton possesses a strong arm and a quick, compact delivery. He also flashes NFL-caliber accuracy, and displays good trajectory on his deep balls. His 30 touchdown passes in 2010 broke Chris Todd's Auburn season-record of 22 (2009), while his 2,854 aerial yards placed second in Tigers' history, topped by only Dameyune Craig (3,277; 1997).

Newton's journey to Auburn was a long and sometimes tumultuous one. It began with a stellar prep career at Westlake High School, where he was one of the most highly regarded recruits in the nation. As a senior, he was named to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Super Southern 100. He participated in the inaugural Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, where he led Team East to a 28-14 victory.

Newton was given the highest rating of five stars by Rivals.com, as that recruiting service ranked him as the second-best dual-threat quarterback and 28th overall prospect in the nation, as well as the second-best prospect in the state of Florida. He was also rated a four-star recruit by Scout.com, who listed him as the 14th-best quarterback prospect in the country.

The quarterback was offered football scholarships from several universities, including Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Oklahoma and Virginia Tech, but committed to the Gators early in his senior season.

"Cameron likes the state of Florida," said his father, Cecil Newton. "From his sophomore season on he was favoring Miami, Florida State or Florida. As it progressed, he actually adapted more to liking [Florida quarterback] Chris Leak. I mean if he was out 'hanging with the guys' he would come home to watch that game. He kind of bought into Chris Leak. He watched him grow and experience a pretty good measure of success. I guess you could say Leak was kind of an invisible mentor to him."

Newton graduated early from Westlake and enrolled at Florida in January of 2007. The early arrival gave him a leg-up on the battle for backup quarterback duties, as he beat out fellow true freshman John Brantley for the job. That year, he saw action in five games as the immediate reserve to Tim Tebow and finished with 40 yards on 5 of 10 passing (50.0%) and 103 yards with three touchdowns on 16 carries (6.44 ypc).

In 2008, Newton completed 1 of 2 passes for 14 yards and added 10 yards and a score on five carries vs. Hawaii in the season opener, but his season was derailed from that point on by injuries and off-field problems. First, a sprained ankle sidelined him and then a neck injury suffered in a car crash added to the setback.

But the worst was yet to come, as Newton was arrested and charged with stealing another student's laptop computer in late November. He wouldn't see the field again that season and was granted a redshirt year. Florida head coach Urban Meyer suspended Newton, and at the conclusion of the season, the quarterback elected to transfer.

Looking for a fresh start, Newton enrolled at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas. In his only season at the junior college level, the sophomore led his team to an 11-1 overall record, including a victory in the NJCAA National Championship. He completed 204 of 336 pass attempts (60.71%) for 2,833 yards, 22 touchdowns and five interceptions. He added 655 yards and 16 scores on 108 carries (6.06 ypc) and earned an NJCAA All-American honor-able mention.

Newton's success put him back on the radar of FBS programs. He was the only quarter-back, from high school or junior college, to receive a five-star rating from Rivals.com in 2009, who ranked him as the top junior college prospect in the country. He was heavily recruited by the likes of Auburn, Arizona, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Oklahoma.

Newton narrowed his choices to Auburn, Mississippi State and Oklahoma before signing with the Tigers late in December of 2009. "It was tough," Newton said. "Real tough. I couldn't have gone wrong with any of the three schools. Mississippi State is a hell of a program. Oklahoma is a hell of a program, but those Auburn coaches did a great job recruiting me, and the Auburn visit was almost overwhelming. I felt like I had known the Auburn coaches for years. The family atmosphere, being able to talk to them, not just about football but everything else, was big for me."

Finally getting his second chance at the FBS level, Newton enrolled at the University of Auburn in January of 2010. He participated in spring practice and took the program by storm, drawing rave reviews from his teammates and coaches on his way to seizing a starting role. But it wouldn't be until early September that the staff would get to find out whether the production matched the hype.

Newton answered the question in his first career Division I start, a season-opening matchup vs. Arkansas State. The junior scored five times, as he completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 186 yards with three touchdowns and set a school game-record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 171 yards and two scores on 15 carries. The performance earned him SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors, an award he would win five more times during the span of the 2010 season.

Newton's exploits made him one of the most decorated players in college football history. He was the recipient of the game's highest individual honor – the Heisman Memorial Trophy – and added the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien Awards to his collection of accolades. He was named the Walter Camp Player of the Year as well as the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Year, and added first-team All-American selections from the Walter Camp Football Foundation, AFCA and Associated Press.

OFF-FIELD ISSUES
2007 Season…Missed the first week of fall practice to focus on academics.
2008 Season…Newton was charged with stealing another student's laptop computer after being arrested (11/21). Newton was suspended from the team, spokesman Steve McClain said, and was being held in the Alachua County jail. He was been charged with felony counts of burglary, larceny and obstructing justice. According to the University Police Department, Newton stole the laptop worth $1,700 and threw it out his dormitory window when officers arrived to investigate the theft. A student reported the computer stolen Oct. 16, according to the police report, and an investigation linked the laptop to Newton five days later when he allegedly used the machine to access the school's network. The school identified the user name as "cnewton," police said. University police went to Newton's dorm Friday, were invited inside and noticed the laptop on Newton's desk. Officers left the room to confirm that the computer matched the serial code of the laptop reported stolen, according to the report. When they returned, it was gone. They later found it behind a Dumpster below Newton's third-floor room. Charges were later dropped against Newton after he completed a diversion program…Newton later said he hung his clothes on a fire sprinkler, causing it to go off and flood his room. The water ruined everything in his room, including his laptop. Needing a new computer, Newton claimed he bought the laptop in question for $120 from a man who was selling it out of his trunk.

2010 Season…It was reported in early November that, according to former Mississippi State player John Bond, former teammate Kenny Rogers claimed to represent Cameron Newton during his recruitment out of junior college and asked for payment to secure Newton's commitment to Mississippi State. Bond said he went straight to MSU with the allegations. "During the 2009 football season, I was contacted by a former football teammate, who represented to me that he was speaking for the Newton camp," Bond said in a statement given through his attorney. "He told me that Cam Newton wanted to play at Mississippi State, but that a specified payment would have to be made. I reported the conversation to the Mississippi State Athletic Department. I was told by the Athletic Department that Mississippi State would not respond to the overture that was made to me, and that Mississippi State would continue to recruit Cam Newton as it does any other football recruit."…Two former Mississippi State players - Kenny Rogers and Bill Bell - said Cecil Newton, Cam's father, sought money during that school's recruitment of Newton. Bond told Mississippi State officials in January that he had been approached by a man - identified as Rogers- who said it would take up to $180,000 to secure Cam Newton's signature…The NCAA released its finding in a statement (12/1). The college sports governing body had concluded that a violation of Newton's amateur status had occurred (11/29). Auburn declared Newton ineligible (11/30) and requested his eligibility be reinstated. Newton was cleared to compete without conditions a day later (12/1). "Based on the information available to the reinstatement staff at this time, we do not have sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or anyone from Auburn was aware of this activity, which led to his reinstatement," Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president for academic and membership affairs, said in a release. "From a student-athlete reinstatement perspective, Auburn University met its obligation under NCAA bylaw 14.11.1. Under this threshold, the student-athlete has not participated while ineligible." Auburn and the NCAA enforcement staff agreed that Newton's father, Cecil Newton, worked with the owner of a scouting service, presumably former Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers, to market Newton as part of a play-for-pay scheme. NCAA officials said based on the information available at this time, that there wasn't sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or Auburn was aware of the pay-for-play scheme, which led to his reinstatement…In the midst of the controversy, Foxsports.com reported that Newton had three instances of academic cheating while attending Florida and faced potential expulsion from the university. The website reported (11/8) that Newton again violated the university's honor code by putting his name on another student's paper and turning it in. Newton then turned in a second paper to the instructor, but it was later found to have been purchased off the Internet. His father, Cecil Newton Sr., declined comment to Foxsports.com. "I wasn't there," the elder Newton said. "I cannot confirm or deny. At a time like this, I'm taking a defensive posture."

Viking Update Top Stories

\r\n\r\n","mobileBody":" Cam Newton's long road through the collegiate ranks came to an end after he guided the Tigers to the national championship in his only year at the university. Regarded as one of the top prep quarterbacks in the country, he began his college career as an understudy for Tim Tebow at the University of Florida in 2007. He appeared in five games as a true freshman for the Gators, but injuries and off-field issues limited the talented athlete to just one game appearance in 2008 before he was suspended from the team. Rather than return to the university, Newton transferred to Blinn College in 2009, where he helped the Buccaneers capture the junior college national title. A heavy recruiting war for Newton's services ensued, with the junior eventually enrolling at Auburn for the 2010 campaign. In early November of 2010, it was reported that during Newton's recruitment out of junior college, former Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers had called his former Bulldogs teammate, John Bond, claiming to represent Newton and asked for payment to secure Newton's commitment to Mississippi State. According to Bond, Rogers said it would take up to $180,000 to secure Cam Newton's signature. After much speculation, the NCAA released its finding in a statement in early December. The college sports governing body had concluded that a violation of Newton's amateur status had occurred. Auburn declared Newton ineligible on November 30th and requested his eligibility be reinstated. Newton was cleared to compete without conditions a day later. According to the release, Auburn and the NCAA enforcement staff agreed that Newton's father, Cecil Newton, worked with Rogers to market Newton as part of a play-for-pay scheme. NCAA officials said based on the information available at the time, there wasn't sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or Auburn was aware of the scheme, which led to his reinstatement. With the controversy behind him, Newton continued on and led Auburn to an undefeated 14-0 record, a Southeastern Conference title and the BCS National Championship. He went on to complete 185 of 280 passes (66.07%) for 2,854 yards, 30 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. He also led the league with 1,473 yards and 20 scores on 264 carries (5.58 ypc), joining Nevada's Colin Kaepernick as the only quarterbacks in college football annals to throw for more than 20 touchdowns and rush for 20 scores in the same season. Despite having his only season as a starter at the FBS level marred by off-field controversy, Newton turned in one of the greatest campaigns in college football history. After capturing the Heisman Memorial Trophy, the Maxwell Award and the Davey O'Brien Award, the All-American is set to take his talents to the professional level, announcing on Jan. 13, 2011 that he was leaving school and applying for the NFL Draft. Newton often earns favorable comparisons to former Texas Longhorns signal caller Vince Young for his outstanding ability as a dual-threat quarterback. Newton boasts an extra 20 pounds on his frame that gives him far more strength. Operating out of the hurry-up spread offense, he carries the ball using the zone-read fake as well as out of the wildcat formation, allowing the Tigers to take full advantage of his athleticism and power. In 2010, Newton shattered Jimmy Siddle's Southeastern Conference record for rushing yards by a quarterback (1,006; 1963) with 1,473 yards. That mark ranks third all-time at Auburn among all ball carriers, and is surpassed only by Bo Jackson (1,786; 1985) and Rudi Johnson (1,567; 2000). He also set a new Auburn season-record with 20 rushing touchdowns, shattering the school's previous mark of 17 by Jackson in 1985 and Carnell Williams in 2003. That number is topped only by Tim Tebow of Florida (23; 2007) on the SEC's single-season record chart. Most scouts feel that Newton possesses a strong arm and a quick, compact delivery. He also flashes NFL-caliber accuracy, and displays good trajectory on his deep balls. His 30 touchdown passes in 2010 broke Chris Todd's Auburn season-record of 22 (2009), while his 2,854 aerial yards placed second in Tigers' history, topped by only Dameyune Craig (3,277; 1997). Newton's journey to Auburn was a long and sometimes tumultuous one. It began with a stellar prep career at Westlake High School, where he was one of the most highly regarded recruits in the nation. As a senior, he was named to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Super Southern 100. He participated in the inaugural Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, where he led Team East to a 28-14 victory. Newton was given the highest rating of five stars by Rivals.com, as that recruiting service ranked him as the second-best dual-threat quarterback and 28th overall prospect in the nation, as well as the second-best prospect in the state of Florida. He was also rated a four-star recruit by Scout.com, who listed him as the 14th-best quarterback prospect in the country. The quarterback was offered football scholarships from several universities, including Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Oklahoma and Virginia Tech, but committed to the Gators early in his senior season. \"Cameron likes the state of Florida,\" said his father, Cecil Newton. \"From his sophomore season on he was favoring Miami, Florida State or Florida. As it progressed, he actually adapted more to liking [Florida quarterback] Chris Leak. I mean if he was out 'hanging with the guys' he would come home to watch that game. He kind of bought into Chris Leak. He watched him grow and experience a pretty good measure of success. I guess you could say Leak was kind of an invisible mentor to him.\" Newton graduated early from Westlake and enrolled at Florida in January of 2007. The early arrival gave him a leg-up on the battle for backup quarterback duties, as he beat out fellow true freshman John Brantley for the job. That year, he saw action in five games as the immediate reserve to Tim Tebow and finished with 40 yards on 5 of 10 passing (50.0%) and 103 yards with three touchdowns on 16 carries (6.44 ypc). In 2008, Newton completed 1 of 2 passes for 14 yards and added 10 yards and a score on five carries vs. Hawaii in the season opener, but his season was derailed from that point on by injuries and off-field problems. First, a sprained ankle sidelined him and then a neck injury suffered in a car crash added to the setback. But the worst was yet to come, as Newton was arrested and charged with stealing another student's laptop computer in late November. He wouldn't see the field again that season and was granted a redshirt year. Florida head coach Urban Meyer suspended Newton, and at the conclusion of the season, the quarterback elected to transfer. Looking for a fresh start, Newton enrolled at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas. In his only season at the junior college level, the sophomore led his team to an 11-1 overall record, including a victory in the NJCAA National Championship. He completed 204 of 336 pass attempts (60.71%) for 2,833 yards, 22 touchdowns and five interceptions. He added 655 yards and 16 scores on 108 carries (6.06 ypc) and earned an NJCAA All-American honor-able mention. Newton's success put him back on the radar of FBS programs. He was the only quarter-back, from high school or junior college, to receive a five-star rating from Rivals.com in 2009, who ranked him as the top junior college prospect in the country. He was heavily recruited by the likes of Auburn, Arizona, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Oklahoma. Newton narrowed his choices to Auburn, Mississippi State and Oklahoma before signing with the Tigers late in December of 2009. \"It was tough,\" Newton said. \"Real tough. I couldn't have gone wrong with any of the three schools. Mississippi State is a hell of a program. Oklahoma is a hell of a program, but those Auburn coaches did a great job recruiting me, and the Auburn visit was almost overwhelming. I felt like I had known the Auburn coaches for years. The family atmosphere, being able to talk to them, not just about football but everything else, was big for me.\" Finally getting his second chance at the FBS level, Newton enrolled at the University of Auburn in January of 2010. He participated in spring practice and took the program by storm, drawing rave reviews from his teammates and coaches on his way to seizing a starting role. But it wouldn't be until early September that the staff would get to find out whether the production matched the hype. Newton answered the question in his first career Division I start, a season-opening matchup vs. Arkansas State. The junior scored five times, as he completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 186 yards with three touchdowns and set a school game-record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 171 yards and two scores on 15 carries. The performance earned him SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors, an award he would win five more times during the span of the 2010 season. Newton's exploits made him one of the most decorated players in college football history. He was the recipient of the game's highest individual honor – the Heisman Memorial Trophy – and added the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien Awards to his collection of accolades. He was named the Walter Camp Player of the Year as well as the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Year, and added first-team All-American selections from the Walter Camp Football Foundation, AFCA and Associated Press.

Newton was suspended from the team, spokesman Steve McClain said, and was being held in the Alachua County jail. He was been charged with felony counts of burglary, larceny and obstructing justice. According to the University Police Department, Newton stole the laptop worth $1,700 and threw it out his dormitory window when officers arrived to investigate the theft. A student reported the computer stolen Oct. 16, according to the police report, and an investigation linked the laptop to Newton five days later when he allegedly used the machine to access the school's network. The school identified the user name as \"cnewton,\" police said. University police went to Newton's dorm Friday, were invited inside and noticed the laptop on Newton's desk. Officers left the room to confirm that the computer matched the serial code of the laptop reported stolen, according to the report. When they returned, it was gone. They later found it behind a Dumpster below Newton's third-floor room. Charges were later dropped against Newton after he completed a diversion program…Newton later said he hung his clothes on a fire sprinkler, causing it to go off and flood his room. The water ruined everything in his room, including his laptop. Needing a new computer, Newton claimed he bought the laptop in question for $120 from a man who was selling it out of his trunk. 2010 Season…It was reported in early November that, according to former Mississippi State player John Bond, former teammate Kenny Rogers claimed to represent Cameron Newton during his recruitment out of junior college and asked for payment to secure Newton's commitment to Mississippi State. Bond said he went straight to MSU with the allegations. \"During the 2009 football season, I was contacted by a former football teammate, who represented to me that he was speaking for the Newton camp,\" Bond said in a statement given through his attorney. \"He told me that Cam Newton wanted to play at Mississippi State, but that a specified payment would have to be made. I reported the conversation to the Mississippi State Athletic Department. I was told by the Athletic Department that Mississippi State would not respond to the overture that was made to me, and that Mississippi State would continue to recruit Cam Newton as it does any other football recruit.\"…Two former Mississippi State players - Kenny Rogers and Bill Bell - said Cecil Newton, Cam's father, sought money during that school's recruitment of Newton. Bond told Mississippi State officials in January that he had been approached by a man - identified as Rogers- who said it would take up to $180,000 to secure Cam Newton's signature…The NCAA released its finding in a statement (12/1). The college sports governing body had concluded that a violation of Newton's amateur status had occurred (11/29). Auburn declared Newton ineligible (11/30) and requested his eligibility be reinstated. Newton was cleared to compete without conditions a day later (12/1). \"Based on the information available to the reinstatement staff at this time, we do not have sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or anyone from Auburn was aware of this activity, which led to his reinstatement,\" Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president for academic and membership affairs, said in a release. \"From a student-athlete reinstatement perspective, Auburn University met its obligation under NCAA bylaw 14.11.1. Under this threshold, the student-athlete has not participated while ineligible.\" Auburn and the NCAA enforcement staff agreed that Newton's father, Cecil Newton, worked with the owner of a scouting service, presumably former Mississippi State player Kenny Rogers, to market Newton as part of a play-for-pay scheme. NCAA officials said based on the information available at this time, that there wasn't sufficient evidence that Cam Newton or Auburn was aware of the pay-for-play scheme, which led to his reinstatement…In the midst of the controversy, Foxsports.com reported that Newton had three instances of academic cheating while attending Florida and faced potential expulsion from the university. The website reported (11/8) that Newton again violated the university's honor code by putting his name on another student's paper and turning it in. Newton then turned in a second paper to the instructor, but it was later found to have been purchased off the Internet. His father, Cecil Newton Sr., declined comment to Foxsports.com. \"I wasn't there,\" the elder Newton said. \"I cannot confirm or deny. At a time like this, I'm taking a defensive posture.\" 2007 Season…Suffered a back injury during spring practice…Did not practice on 10/15 and was wearing a protective boot on his left foot. 2008 Season…Suffered a sprained ankle vs. Hawaii in the season opener (8/30)…Suffered a neck injury in a car crash after a vehicle he was riding in was rear-ended (11/04).
