Ten offers for MD LB

Linebacker Marcus Newby of North Potomac (Md.) Quince Orchard already has ten offers, and has visited several schools. He hopes to visit a few more schools in the coming months, including a Big 12 school that he hopes to check out in person.
"The recruiting process has been going great," said the four-star prospect. "I've been to two Junior Days, at Maryland and West Virginia, and am planning on going to some spring practices.
"I liked Maryland and how they had position meetings and the facilities are great," he said. "West Virginia was good too. Their facilities are huge and I like how their strength and conditioning coach splits everyone up into three groups so that everyone can get their work in and nobody is really waiting."

The 6-foot-1, 207-pound linebacker knows one school in particular that he would like to visit during the spring.
"I really want to visit Nebraska for their spring practices," Newby said. "Their Defensive Coordinator, Coach John Papuchis, went to my high school."
When asked if he had any current favorites, Newby explained his methodical plan for choosing the right school.
"No schools stand out yet, and I'm just taking it all in right now," he said. "That's why I'm visiting places so I can get a look at each of them. I'll probably make my decision before my senior season."
In addition to the schools that have offered him, Newby is in contact with many additional schools, including Alabama, Penn State, Wisconsin, Auburn and North Carolina.
