[bumped from the diaries -ed] Rivals:
Newsome has been the focus of widespread speculation that he's going to end up somewhere other than Michigan. After not wanting to talk about recruiting on Saturday and Sunday, he opened up a little bit on Monday. "I'm committed to Michigan," Newsome said. "Me and Bryce McNeal were going around bragging how we're going to beat Randall Carroll, who's going to USC, Cierre Wood, who's going to Notre Dame. We were bragging about things like that." Newsome said he really hit it off with McNeal. "It was great to be around a guy that's going to be a future teammate hopefully," he said. "He's a great guy. Bryce is a good, good guy. He's one of my boys now. We're going to really stay in touch."
The military academy is really going to help his progress. Nice to hear he is firm on his committment. It is also good news that him and BM are getting close because come Februrary those relationships really matter when it comes down to signing day where we all know anything can happen.
[Me again. 1) Don't think we're quite out of the woods yet. 2) Sounds like Newsome smoked that camp.-ed]
