Newman Chooses ASU

Newman Chooses ASU
Meg Newman

Meg Newman, the 6-foot-3 forward from Indianapolis, Indiana, verbally committed to Arizona State. The No. 15 ranked forward nationally was down to Maryland, Michigan State, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Purdue.

Newman came into the Brandon Clay Scouting All American Training Academy last fall with a budding national reputation amongst college coaches from all levels. Her showing in Atlanta then again at the Indianapolis Academy against some of the nation’s premier prospects did nothing but entrench her standing as an elite hybrid forward in the class. She has great length and size in the frontcourt. Newman can continue to grow her overall skill set but the athleticism and motor that she plays with are revving at a high level already. Add that to her desire to improve and it is evident that Newman belongs in the discussion at the head of the class. She has a chance to be really talented at the forward spot and it appears that her best days of basketball are still far ahead of her.

Newman is the first player to commit to Arizona State and head coach Charli Turner-Thorne in the 2021 class. The Sun Devils signed a five-player class in 2020, including four ELITE 150 prospects.  Looking head to a wing tandem of 2020 signee Sydney Erikstrup and Newman opens up a lot of possibilities.
