QB Morgan Newton (6-5 215) of Carmel, IN has trimmed his list to a final eight of Clemson, USC, Indiana, Purdue, Kentucky, Illinois, Florida and Miami. This summer he has visited Illinois, Purdue, Kentucky and Indiana. He plans to visit Florida and Miami the middle of this month. He was at Clemson and USC in the spring.
Newton said there's no favorite among the eight but he feels Clemson and Florida are showing him the most interest, with Kentucky, Illinois and the in-state schools also very interested. Newton said he's not sure of the strength of the interest right now from USC and Miami. Newton said he gets regular mail from the schools but hasn't talked recently with recruiters.
