As first reported by 247Sports, Deon Newsome has committed to Virginia Tech over Virginia. Deon's father is former Hokie Myron Newsome who played at Tech in the late 90s. Newsome is 5-11, 172 out of Hampton in the seven-five-seven.
Deon is a true athlete that lines up all over the field for the Crabbers.
Will he be at wide receiver, where he's averaging 27 yards a catch? Or maybe tailback, where he turned a 2-yard loss into a 3-yard touchdown on fourth-and-goal last week? Or even quarterback, where he's particularly effective in the wildcat?
The truth is, you just don't know. And that's just offense — he's also a morale killer at linebacker and as a return specialist.
He projects as a corner back, and he might be the second/third to last defensive back we take in this class (DaeSean Hamilton, Kendall Fuller being the other two).
What do you guys think of his film?
