Malik Newman committed to play college ball at Mississippi State last week. Newman is the #10 overall prospect in the ESPN top 100. Newman follows in his father Horatio Webster's footsteps who also played college ball at State. The commitment follows State's firing of former coach Rick Ray.
The commitment propels Mississippi State's recruiting class up to no. 17 according to ESPN and spells trouble for the rest of the SEC in next year's season. For more on the commitment and students around campus' reaction check out the video below.
