Newell won't make this week's camp

DL Peyton Newell will not make it to Columbia this week.

DL Peyton Newell of Hiawatha, KS will make his decision next month between USC and Nebraska without taking a final trip to Columbia. Newell had hoped to make it in for Friday's Black Magic Camp but said Tuesday night he won't be able to make it.

"I won't be able to because it's my grandmother's birthday weekend," Newell said. However, he did have a long conversation with Gamecock coaches Tuesday night. "I just spent thirty minutes on the phone with the coaches so I'm still very interested. We just talked about how important I am to this class and things like that."

Newell visited USC in March and Nebraska in June. He will announce the choice at his school August 30th and said there is no leader.
