2018 Shooting Guard John Newman Set to Commit Friday


John Newman, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Greensboro Day (NC) School, will announce his college decision Friday via Instagram Live. Newman took an official visit to Clemson earlier this week (June 20).

Newman named a final four of Virginia, Providence, Clemson, and Wake Forest on Thursday. He has only taken one official visit. Newman has taken unofficial visits to Charlotte (Sept. 10) and Wake Forest (Feb. 4).

Playing on the Nike EYBL with Team CP3, Newman has averaged 8.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 15 games. Missing only one game thus far, Newman has led Team CP3 to a 13-3 record and an invite to Peach Jam next month.

Newman is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 282 overall player in the Class of 2018, and the No. 14 player in the state of North Carolina. All signs point to Newman choosing Clemson, following his official visit.

After three predictions on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball, the site gives Clemson a 100% chance of landing the junior guard. All three predictions came within the hour that Newman announced his intentions to commit Friday.
