DL Peyton Newell of of Hawatha, KS is deciding between USC and Nebraska and will announce his decision August 30th at his school at 2:30 PM. Newell visited USC in March for a junior day and is looking at attending the Black Magic Camp later this month.
"I have a birthday in the family that weekend, so I guess if something comes up with that, but otherwise we're planning on coming," Newell said. "If I don't make it down that doesn't mean I'm not interested. I don't think it's that important just because I've already been down there. I know everything about South Carolina. Just because I don't go down there doesn't mean that they are still not in my top two."
Newell talked with USC recruiter GA Mangus a couple of days ago and he last talked with Nebraska about two weeks ago. He does not plan to visit Nebraska again before his decision. Newell is working on his decision and is finding it hard to identify a leader.
"I'm kind of going back and forth," he said. "South Carolina keeps popping up in my head compared to the other schools so I know that's a sign of something, but you know, no leader right now, but they are definitely at the top. I think it will come down to which school enters my mind first when I wake up on August 30th. Obviously I've been thinking about it every day and by then I'll know."
