I don't think anyone really has any idea what Newsome's prospects are for significant playing time. IIRC, UMBig11 said it's 50-50 whether he ever sees the field again. It's a long way from seeing the field at all to earning starts.

It's gotta be hard to not lose some credibility for him with his coaches and teammates. When you almost leave, you need to recommit 100%. Even the slightest hint of anything less and people will quit on him. I hope for the best.

tells me that there may have been a misunderstanding.  He's talked with the coaches, has a better understanding of his role, and is comfortable with it.  

I think his teammates understand his position.  Now, practicing your butt off will show everyone you mean businesses.

Thinking out loud: He early enrolled. Assuming he took atleast 12 credit hours this summer, he'll be a sophomore academically after this current semester. Do you think he consulted with an academic advisor/Mama Gwen/coach and realized that he's on pace to graduate after the 2019 Season with an additional 2 years to play should he transfer? A Michigan degree is nothing to sneeze at, and he probably still needs to refine his body before he'd be ready to play at any FBS school.
