Newell is a four-star prospect, rated as the No. 23 defensive tackle nationally.

Scout Eval
Plays as a stand up rusher in high school, using his combination of superior size and speed to put pressure on the offenses. He makes a bunch of plays behind the line of scrimmage and shows good burst and explosion when doing so. He is a sound tackler. It is tougher to give an honest evaluation of his actual skills and techniques on the interior, because he does not play there, but you know he will disrupt and fire in to gaps. will have Josh Harvey in attendance at the Newell announcement.
