The Opening: Previewing Ryan Newsome
7v7 Team: Alpha Pro
HT: 5'8 | WT: 166
Recruiting: Newsome recently named his top five of Oregon, UCLA, Notre Dame, Texas and Oklahoma. It looks like he will take his official visits before making a decision, but has already made unofficial stops to his top schools, so it could also come at any time. Texas is the only in-state option left on his list, but you may also want to watch the west coast schools closely.
Scouting Report: 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.
At Stake: Newsome is already seen and perceived as one of the top receivers in the country, but because he is under 5'9 many question his size. Defensive backs have another thing coming when they try to come up and be physical at the line of scrimmage as Newsome is quick and strong. He will try to prove his size is of little concern for his future success.
