Class of 2013
Lynden (Wash.) High
6'3", 225lbs/ Outside Linebacker
Recruiting: Offers from Air Force, Army and Washington State.
Lynden (Wash.) linebacker Caleb Newman is all of 6'3" 225lbs and is built to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He has a trim frame and moves very well. Newman ran sideline to sideline, but looked best coming after the quarterback. Newman plays offensive tackle for his high school team and plays with tremendous toughness. There were very few plays on offense or defense where his opponent didn't end up on the ground. Newman knocked out the Sultan quarterback early in the second half with a vicious hit on a pass rush. Newman will play linebacker at the Pac-12 level, but could play defensive end at a lower level school.
Newman appears to be very interested in the academies and there is a little separating his three offers at this point.
