Five-star shooting guard Malik Newman is expected to commit to Mississippi State on Friday, according to Gary Parrish with CBSSports.com:
quote:

Granted, this is high-stakes recruiting, and Newman could ultimately reverse course for any number of reasons -- and it should be noted that Kentucky coach John Calipari once actually flipped a recruit (Terrence Jones) after the recruit had already publicly committed to another school (Washington). So keep that in mind. Still, multiple sources -- including sources from multiple staffs involved in Newman's recruitment -- told CBSSports.com on Wednesday that they're now under the impression that Newman, a five-star prospect from Callaway High in Jackson, Miss., will enroll at Mississippi State.

Two coaches simply said Newman-to-Mississippi State is "done."

Another coach added: "We're still trying ... but I think MSU is the place."
Newman is the No. 1 shooting guard in the country and No. 1 player from the state of Mississippi.

The ClarionLedger.com reports that Newman is still deciding but LSU is not in the picture anymore.
quote:

"No, I haven't committed," Newman told The Clarion-Ledger. "Right now I'm down to my final four schools - Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Kansas and Kentucky."

Here here. A one and done guy, regardless of talent, would have to be pretty good to unseat the already established and experienced Hornsby. And of course, the New Iberia Haircut is still the best haircut in the world. In. The. World.

Who needs a 1 and done freshman in Newman when you already have a seasoned senior in Hornsby?
